Are You Tired of Fighting About Books?
Are you exhausted by their excuses and whining? Stressed out by their poor reading grades? Worried about how well they’ll do in school…and in life?
It’s not your fault.
Most kids either dislike reading or hate it outright. Ask any English teacher. The truth is books are generally written for kids who already love to read.
Not for kids who don’t like reading in the first place.
But what if there were books that reluctant readers actually enjoyed? Books that kept them turning pages instead of throwing a fit? Books that were written specifically for them?
Now there are.
Books for Kids Who Hate to Read
When we launched Reluctant Reader Books, we focused on one question: why do kids put books down?
Kids Hate Reading When:
- Books look too long
- Paragraphs go on forever
- Too much detail & not enough action
- Chapters never end
- Stories slow down & get boring
- They teach lessons instead of tell stories
Our goal was simple. Leave out the stuff kids don’t like, and focus entirely on the stuff that will keep them reading.
Kids Keep Reading When:
- Books look doable instead of overwhelming
- Paragraphs & sentences are short
- Action keeps the story moving
- Short chapters provide lots of breaks
- Stories are exciting with lots of twists
- They tell great stories
