How to Raise a Reader / by abby hanlon

New York Times Editors, Pamela Paul and Maria Russo’s new book, “How To Raise A Reader” is stocked with recommendations for kids of all ages and phases. For reluctant readers, they recommend Dory!

“There are kids, and for whatever reason it seems it’s especially boys, who are not reading on the schedule that the schools or other parents expect these days,” said Russo. Discovering and developing a boy’s taste in books can take some trial and error sampling. Series books such as Dog Man, Wimpy Kid, and Dory Fantasmagory worked with Russo’s reluctant reader. “A lot of the time it’s the books that have strong visual images that really call out to this kind of boy.”
