Are All Kids Reluctant Readers? Mine Are! And What to Do

How to Get Kids Reading with Book Love!

Now that I’ve gotten all three of my kids reading, I realize that they were all reluctant readers at some point. Which made me wonder. Are all kids reluctant readers? Is reading like learning to ride a bicycle? A milestone skill that comes to kids at a different points in their life?

Getting Kids to Read

I’m back from school vacation week and ready to resume my weekly features with a twist. They are now going to be weekly-ish. Yes, like the Ish! book by Peter Reynolds, a facsimile of the real thing because it turns out to be a frantic pace to be posting weekly. I’m assuming overwhelming for you, my readers too! 🙂 In the meantime, I am cooking up another idea for a blog children’s literature so please stay tuned… Read more…

Raising a Reader

Thank you again for contributing photos to this weekly Monday feature, Caught in the Act … of Reading.  Thank you also to multiple photo contributors, Mama C and the Boys, and parents of Issie and Lucie.  It’s really fun to see your children loving to read as well as making steady progress! And please take a minute to view the video of older sister Riley reading to her little brother. Blue Hat, Green Hat has never been more fun and how exciting that Riley can read to her brother and does it so nicely!  I have to bribe my daughters to read to their little brother; they view it as a chore!

Raising a Reader and How to Get Kids to Read

Thank you to everyone who sent in photos of kids Caught in the Act … of READING.  If you would like go send me a photo, please email me at pragmaticmom.com (at) gmail (dot) com.  I definitely need more photos.  This week, it’s been fun to see some of these kids caught in the act of reading again and again!  In other photos, older siblings are reading with their younger siblings which is so nice and rarely  happens in my house but when it does, it’s a moment in time that I want to freeze and keep forever. What are your kids reading and can you catch them in the act of reading?! Read more…

Getting Kids Reading

This week’s cute kids Caught in the Act …  of READING! come courtesy of There’s A Book, DesignTrackMind, My Library Tweets, and reader, Nortina.  Thank you all!  If you have a picture of your child reading and would like to send it in, please email me at pragmaticmom.com (at) gmail (dot) com.  I am posting the pics in the order that I receive them, so I will post all the pictures eventually.  And I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS need photos.  If you send them to me, this means I don’t have to stalk my neighbor’s kids for photos.  Seriously, do I do that?  Not yet, but maybe if I get desperate!  It could happen and only you can prevent it!
