HOW TO MAKE KIDS WANT TO READ #2: Comics, Magazines and Newspapers Count
Reading must be fun or a child won’t read it. Not all reading comes in the form of a book. Allow your student to choose comic books, magazines, and newspapers. Superhero comics, graphic novels, sports magazines, MAD Magazine, and the sports section of the newspaper are some of the most exciting reading out there. Encourage them to read these if they hate reading books. Don’t worry that these are not considered “fine classic literature” by all the snobby know-it-alls. Reading is reading and these items are fun.
