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. Kids tend to love comic books, so it might be worth suggesting that. There are different comic book universes too, so kids should have a lot of comic books to read. They could even see which universe their state prefers too by looking at this source here. That could be interesting for them to read. 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. Kids aren’t going to want to read long books with lots of words on the page, they need smaller books with more engaging writing to keep them interested. This is why magazines and comic books are perfect.
