How's reading going with your kids? Have they caught the reading bug? Is it hard to pry their newest book out of their hands? I hope so. Alas, it isn't so at my house. Snoopy thinks reading is one of the hardest things he's ever tried. He's getting better all the time, but to him its an arduous climb up a steep mountain.
We've recently had a win though. We found the National Geographic Kids, leveled readers. These books are really really cool! The photo illustrations are stunning (of course you would expect no less from National Geographic). The text is easy to comprehend and, at the same time, very informative. They don't dumb things down like you see in some non-fiction leveled readers (I hate that). I've learned things while Snoopy's read these books to me.
The best part? Snoopy actually got excited while reading the Tigers book. It was awesome!!!
I'm always on the lookout for something that will peak my little guys interest in reading. Suggestions anyone?
