The Sims 4: How to Read With an Adult

If you have a child aged sim in The Sims 4 who is trying to finish the Whiz Kid Aspiration, you are going to need to complete the read with an adult part of the aspiration. This is an easy part, but it isn’t clear how to get an adult to read to a child in the game.

How to Read With an Adult

This is something that you need to be controlling an adult to get to work. When controlling an adult you’ll need to click on a children’s book (either in a bookshelf or in the adult’s inventory) and choose read to child and choose the child who is currently working on the aspiration.

You may need to first purchase a children’s book which can be done by clicking on a bookcase and choosing purchase books and you can sort by children’s books.

You also may need to read with an adult more than once so you can complete the entire time allotment for this part of the aspiration.

Final Thoughts

Having a child in The Sims 4 finish aspirations is awesome, especially the Whiz Kid aspiration so you can get the mentally gifted trait for your sim’s future. Hopefully you now know how to read with an adult so you can get it done. Happy Playing!
