My eight-year-old son, William, was not an early reader. We weren’t worried, he wasn’t behind in school, but he didn’t learn to read at the age of three, four or even five. In kindergarten and first grade, I struggled to find books he wanted to read and then bribed him to alternate reading sentences, pages and then chapters.
I admit it. This book loving Mom was disappointed. I’ve dreamed of sharing my love of reading with my kids. I envisioned all of us curled up on cold winter nights each engrossed in our own books. Reading still isn’t my son’s favorite thing to do, but he does now request books to read. And this summer he made a list of both his favorite books he wants to re-read and new books he wants to try. For my reluctant reader, this is a huge. I hope this list inspires your reader too!
