Admittedly, The Older dislikes reading. By “dislike,” I mean the roll-on-the-floor-screaming-when-asked-to-read type of dislike. It’s one of the biggest struggles here at home, unless there’s a school competition going on or some way to earn things (like our local library’s Read Your Way to the Rays program). I struggle with this every year, so I was so pleased when I found this in Target’s $1 bin!
It’s basically a way for me to see what he’s reading, make sure he understands what he’s reading, and gives him a chance to give his opinion about the book.
I figure if I combine this with local reading programs or programs on the internet like the Scholastic Summer Challenge, we’ll be set!
