I am an avid reader. I sometimes bemoan the fact that my children don't love to read as much as I do; but there aren't many who read as much as I do. I have found ways of tricking them into reading by finding things they like instead of what I think they should be reading.
Their busy Summer Schedule of bike riding, all day TV watching, eating their weight everyday, skateboarding and sports didn't include any reading. I am going to try to slip some in anyway. I am their mother.
My son was a hard case. He hates reading if there are no pictures. Perfect Solution - Graphic novels.
Yes, the Hardy Boys have been updated. This is a box set of four so I'm really excited to see how long it will take him to finish the set.
