Select a Series
Even the most reluctant readers will latch on to a series such as “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” or will engage in the short passages of “The Guinness Book of World Records”. It’s important not to worry so much about whether or not the book is a classic or even good literature. The point is to get the child reading. And quite often, when a child enjoys a book, he’ll seek out the next book in the series or another title by the same author.
