"Last week I covered different writing techniques and styles for writing for kids who don't enjoy reading. I'm also including tactics to encourage kids to read and my book suggestions for reluctant readers. As a parent, teacher and writer, encouraging independent literacy is important to me. Reading is a powerful tool, it can entertain, educate and inform.
Most writers are keen readers, so it's easy to overlook the many kids that struggle with reading and therefore don't get any enjoyment out of persevering though what they see as a chore. If you can change that, you can change a child's world."
