- And still I grapple with this…he loves learning and soaking up new things but I worry that he associates reading with ‘work’.
It reminded me of the CBC Teen Book Panel…Before school ended I attended the event and one of the teens made a profound testimony. She said, “during the school year, I have NO time for pleasure reading. That has to wait until the summer.” There were so many assigned readings throughout the school year that pleasure reading had to take a back seat. Huh? There’s no time for pleasure reading!? I’m not looking for an answer, as we know this is complicated.
With my son, I tried every way possible to make pleasure reading FUN. No, I did not dress up as the characters but I did spend time looking at book jackets with him, taking him to the library, etc — Never did I think that he would have the challenge of finding-the-time to pleasure read.
Anyway, Mike wrote to me recently to share his new website http://www.readingontherun.com/
