Raising Readers

How to Get Your Child to Love Reading: for Ravenous and Reluctant Readers Alike by Esme Raji Codell

This is an invaluable guide for parents hoping to encourage the love of reading in their children. Former teacher, children's librarian, and author, Esme Raji Codell knows her stuff! With book lists, suggestions for integrating books into your everyday life and interests and a general contagious enthusiasm for the love of children's books, Ms. Codell offers parents a positive manual on the subject.

Raising A Reader: a Mother's Tale of Desperation and Delight by Jennie Nash

I just started reading this book about a mother's frustrations and joy in trying to impart the love of reading to her young daughters. With reading being such an important, lifelong skill parents everywhere struggle to know what the best way to approach the subject of reading with their children should be. When you are also trying to encourage a serious love and appreciation for books and reading at the same time, it can add to the excitement and stress!

I grew up as a reluctant reader. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries, especially for boys 8 and up, that kids hate to put down. My web site is at and my Books for Boys blog is at I also have a short story in a new book called LAY UPS and LONG SHOTS, published by Darby Creek Publishing.
