Are you having trouble getting your boy interested in reading? The key is to find a subject that interests them and run with it. Typically, nonfiction and fiction works with lots of real information and facts are more interesting to boys. I have asked a few of the parents around the office what got their kids reading over the years and made a list to help you get those reluctant readers excited about reading.
No matter what your kid is reading the important thing is that they are reading! Things like comic books and graphic novels may seem simplistic but the language in some of those types of books is very advanced and will help expand their vocabulary. The key to better reading is practice, practice, practice so let them read what they like so they can continue to practice and improve. Also don’t stop reading to your child just because he can read to himself at this point. It helps readers of all levels to hear what a good reader sounds like and it gets them interested in books they may not normally choose on their own.
