Do you want to ignite the love of reading in your child?
Competent readers have access to a whole world of knowledge and adventure. Research shows that many boys fall short of girls in their ability and interest in reading. But this week’s guest, Pam Allyn, Executive Director of LitLife, offers wise advice for helping children discover the joy of reading. Drawing on her latest book, Best Books for Boys: How to Engage Boys in Reading in Ways that Change Their Lives, Pam hones in particularly on ways to help our sons be more comfortable with reading. But, whatever the ages and gender of your children, you won’t want to miss this discussion.
In your own family or circle of friends, do you see the gender differences in reading habits that this week’s guest discussed with Marti and Erin? What have you found to be effective in helping your sons or daughters become competent, avid readers? Please share your thoughts in our REPLY space!
