My husband and I absolutely Love to read!! I have always wanted to instill this in my children. My eldest child is an amazing reader and does read for enjoyment (consequently he is reading at a level 2 grade levels higher than his). My daughters also enjoy books but I worry that they may lose interest or not think of reading as an enjoyable leisure activity when tv and video games or just socializing is an option! This book would be fantastic to inspire our family!

I love reading, but my husband finds it very difficult - we both want our kids to love doing it.

Oh, and I really want to start more chapter/longer books with them, so I need some help with that.

My six year old daughter is struggling with reading. She recently was tested in school and is considered deficient. I would love to try to figure out the connection for her and not make reading such a chore. She works so hard and wants to get reading down and she has made great strides this year, but she and I need that extra push to get her at grade level and maybe this book would help us do that.

I was never a reader and was not all that great with english classes. It always took me forever to read anything (and it still does, that is why I do not read much now as an adult). I do not want my children to have same difficulties I had with reading and writing.
