Calling All Parents of Reluctant Readers!

Reading to Kids

March is National Reading Month and as a parent of a reluctant reader I can speak to the importance of keeping reading alive in your house in anyway you can. Bonggamom is having a giveaway in honor of National Reading Month that is great for reluctant readers. Leapfrog has been an educational company I have turned to many times to help our kids along the way to reading. Leapfrog wants to inspire families to read together more. So for National Reading Month, they've launched the 1 Million Reading Hours Campaign. All you have to do is commit to an amount of time you'll read to your child a day. Simple.

For Bonggamom's giveaway, go back to her blog and leave a comment as to how many minutes you committed to read to your child. Once again, simple. And you could win a Leapfrog Tag! How great is that?

I always appreciate finding others who are concerned about helping children become readers.

That's because I grew up as a reluctant reader. And my father was the author of over 70 books. Now I write action-adventure and mystery books especially for tween boys. My blog, Books for boys, is # 4 on Google today.

Keep up your good work!

Yes, I have a reluctant reader too. You really have to get creative and put in the time! Thanks for the info!
