I came across this website today http://www.readkiddoread.com/
James Patterson is an author and on this website he suggests how to get kids to become readers. He gives suggestions of where parents can find books for reluctant readers, boys and also gives book titles for different age groups. He states the obvious: The more kids read, the better readers they become. When the weather outside is cold, snowy and windy (like this week has been), grab your kids, snuggle up, and read a good book or two together. You will be building a bonding relationship and helping your child become a reader. Enjoy this time together!
