Do You Have a Reluctant Reader?

With food, kids can be fickle, picky, or just plain unwilling to try something new. Umm, and did I say picky?! Well, the same can be said for reading. There can be so many reasons why a child is reluctant to read.
 
Here are some of the reasons I have encountered tutoring kids:
  • They are not good at it. They find it difficult so they do not want to.
  • "Reading is boringggggg...."
  • They are not motivated.
  • The book does not have enough pictures. Too many words.

Reads for the Summer!

The year 2020 has presented a lot to us. Between Netflix's documentary hit Tiger King, a pandemic, quarantining due to the pandemic, talk of murder hornets, postponement of the Olympics, racial justice movements (please and thank you), sky-rocketed unemployment, AHHHHH! we have endured and still dealing with quite a bit. However, I am a glass half full kind of person, so I believe we will get through this and be stronger because of it.

In the meantime, I have to read to help me cope. So, I'm sharing my list of "next reads" and recommended reads. Hope you enjoy!

By the way, my taste is all over the place-- so don't judge me :-)
