Most Saturday mornings I see a delightful little girl named Samantha. Samantha likes the Mr Men and Little Miss books, and every Saturday she selects two more for her collection. Choosing which two isn’t always easy, but once she’s decided she’s happy to move on to her next adventure for the day. It’s great to see a young child so interested in books.
Then I met a wonderful teacher, trying to find reading material that would appeal to a boy with a limited vocabulary, who really hasn’t yet made a connection with reading.
Reading brings great pleasure to so many of us. But not to all. For me, the joy of reading was in acquiring new information, and in escaping into different worlds. How about you? And how can reading be made interesting to those who don’t find it so?
