Regular visitors will be aware I am a mother of four children who I hope will enjoy reading as much as I do as they grow up. My husband doesn’t read at all – not even the newspaper – so it’s up to me to set a good example. We go to the library every couple of weeks so they can choose what to read, they also bring home books from the school library. However, of the four, I have one non reader, 2 readers and 1 reluctant reader.
Simariah, who is 18, doesn’t read anything longer than Facebook status updates and text messages despite my best efforts.
Aleah, who is eleven, is an eager reader. She is just starting to show an interest in more YA rather than MG titles.
She has just finished Fool Me Twice and Wish You Were Italian from the If Only series published by Bloomsbury
And is currently reading Nowhere Boys by Elise McCredie
Makyah, ten, likes to read before bed. He has recently worked his way through Robert Muchamore’s Cherub series
And I just bought him the first book in the Skullduggery Pleasant series to try.
Jasiah, eight, will only read when there is absolutely nothing better to do or if it is related to whatever his current gaming obsession is.
I’ve recently bought him the Minecraft Handbooks which he refers to over and over again. At least he is reading something!
What are your kids reading?
