Did I ever tell you how I can not make my oldest daughter do anything she doesn’t want to? For example, the Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade Halloween parades at school. She flat out refused to wear a costume. Didn’t want to. Wasn’t going to.
Sure, I have forced her to do things: Strap into her car seat. Go to school. (Big things though.)
You have to pick your battles. Reading is one of those battles.
So when it came to reading, well, I had to get super creative. Think waaay outside the box to help her want to read.
I wonder if you’ve gone through the same thing or are going through it right now?
I hope one of these ideas will help you encourage your kids to read, want to read. From A to Z, my favorite reading resources for summer reading . . .

Have your children embraced reading or has it been a challenge?
