Nicholas is what I would call a reluctant reader. He doesn’t want to read, even though he can. So, we made a deal. I’d get him whatever book he wanted. But he had to read it.

He got the Encyclopedia of Everything.

And he reads it. He has to do 10 minute of reading to me a day – and we break it into two 5 minute deals.

Sometimes he lines up his stuffed animals and reads to them. Or his sister. But he really does read the book. He has to sound out A LOT of words. But he does it. And he is happy to do it

That’s what getting him reading is all about. Being happy to read.
