Don't expect too much too soon. Don't give a young child a heavy academic schedule. I know too many adults (of ALL ages) who don't read books because they'd never associate reading as an activity one does for pleasure.

With a young child you need to read to them a lot - this instills a love of literature. Encourage them to be creative and make up their own stories. You can write their stories down for them until they're ready to write stories for themselves.
