- Over-scheduled kids with too many activities
- The kids who say they can't find interesting content (especially boys)
- Those who struggle with reading and, therefore, don't like to
My wife and I are working on solving this one. We are currently working on an on-line catalog for reluctant readers that will highlight some of the best books and series for kids of several age ranges. This service will make you aware of a lot of really neat books.
The secret for dealing with the third group is to provide chapter books with bigger print, short chapters that pull the readers through their stories, and supporting activities and games to provide related content that helps them get over short attention span challenges.
