Books are cool, aren’t they? I mean, we know that now, but chances are that many of you weren’t as excited about books as I was between the ages of 7 and 16. My own daughters are reluctant readers, preferring to spend their ‘down time’ doing art and craft and writing – but they are slowly coming to the party as I entice them with books I know are even more fun than art and craft.
My son, Max, is just like me: he’ll read anything and everything, but it wasn’t always the case. For a while there I thought I had somehow managed to birth three non-readers – gasp! But it turned out that I just wasn’t offering him the right books and he quickly caught on once he’d found the Tom Gates series (read on!).
Trust me, there is a series out there that will open the rad world of reading for your child too. To help you get your own reluctant readers across the line, I’m giving you a list of all the books that finally got my kids interested in reading.
