Re: but I dont like to read...

Do you have a set time for independent reading every day? Maybe set a 30 minute block of time every day and have that be her reading time. Does your little one still nap? I was thinking that if she did, you can set the reading time during that time and you can read as well (setting an example while getting in some reading of your own).

ETA: You wouldn't have to start out with 30 minutes. You can start out with 5 minutes if that's all she can handle and build up from there. Once you reach the desired time, keep it at that, and have her do it every day. Then she doesn't have to ask "how much", "how long", etc. She will just know. I doubt that will stop all the whining, but it's a start at getting her into reading every day.
