Guys Read

Every night, I read to Son for about 15 minutes to half an hour. Son doesn't really like to read, I think for a variety of reasons. I hope every night that my reading to him will awaken more of an interest in reading for him.

We've spent most of the winter and into the spring reading Jenny Nimmo's Charlie Bone series, and we've recently been reading Daniel Pinkwater's The Snarkout Boys and the Avacado of Death.

Son seems to like this routine. If he's still awake at 9:30, when I usually stop, he begs for more. I usually relent and add two more pages. Sometimes, he falls asleep before I get done.

I just found a web site that is relevant to this. Guys Read is a project to encourage boys to read. Check it out.
