If you're anything like me, you're in the post-Christmas blahs. Or will be shortly. To help you out of the doldrums & give you & your kids something to discuss & contemplate & mull over, YOU CAN HELP ME OUT!!
As the sidebar on this blog indicates, I'll be presenting at UVU's "For the Love of Reading" conference in February. I'll be sharing ideas & stories about what we can do as moms to help our kids LOVE READING.
I want to provide a stellar "Books Kids & Parents Adore" list for whomever is brave enough to attend my presentation. I would LOVE to get your ideas of books you & your kids love. Only list ABSOLUTE FAVORITES (1 or 2 per category) for whichever age categories are relevant to you & your kiddos. A short blurb about why the books are great would also be helpful.
Here are the basic age categories:
Teens who think they're adults but really aren't quite yet
Reluctant Teen Readers (esp boys)
Also, if you have any fantastic ideas that have helped instill a LOVE of READING in your kids (bribes, incentives, fun ideas, etc.) -- PLEASE SHARE!!
Thanks in advance for your help on this. I'll think of some fantastic prize (hint: it'll probably be a book that I adore...) for the parent (or parents!!) who stun me with their book lists and/or reading ideas.
How's that for a carrot?
