Parents who Love Reading, Kids who Don't: How it Happens and what You Can Do about it
An inspiring and practical book by a veteran high school teacher that shows how to make your child an avid reader -- even if he or she now dislikes books.
Virtually all teachers agree: The best students are avid readers. They're the kids who don't just do their homework, but pick up books and magazines to read for pleasure. Yet even parents who love to read sometimes find that their kids don't enjoy books. Now, Mary Leonhardt shows how to awaken, or reawaken, a child to the joy of reading. She even identifies the seven stages that children go through as they develop their reading skills and outlines what parents can do to help them along. Her advice is clear, down-to-earth, and proven effective.
