This little 3rd grader didn't like reading very much until he discovered the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series. I admit, it's definitely not my reading style, but it's exactly what he needed to kickstart his love for reading. He started reading Wimpy Kid books about a year ago. Since then, he has started devouring books. He read through the Magic Treehouse series, the Geronimo Stilton series, and now he is enjoying Theo Stilton books. Figure out what your kiddos enjoy, and work with your librarian to find some books that fit their reading level and their personal style.
I'd love to hear what your kids love to read too!
