What is a reluctant reader?
This term is used to describe a child who can read but has little interest in reading regularly.
Some children see reading as hard work and will only read when and what they have to. We, as parents, want our children to experience the joy of reading and ensure that they have the best advantages in their education.
Reading is a skill that needs to be practised.
Children who read a lot have better comprehension, extensive vocabulary and vivid imaginations. They are better equipped to handle the volumes of reading they have to do in secondary school.
So what can we do ?
