Readers, I need your help. I have a twelve year old son who hates to read! He has struggled with learning disabilities over the years, dyslexia being one of them, and I think all the struggles have led to a complete dislike of the written language.
He and I went out tonight and talked about how we could improve his reading this year. He told me that he didn’t like to read, and especially didn’t like to read stories that are boring. He said he would like to read stories that are exciting and full of adventure.
This is where you come in, I need some good book ideas for boys that are action packed, full of adventure, and guaranteed to keep this guy’s attention for more than five minutes. My only stipulations are the books need to be easy for him to read (about a fifth grade level) and no books about magic (that’s dad’s rule). He is an outdoors type of kid that would rather be hiking, bike riding, or swimming than any thing else. His favorite fiction book is My Side of the Mountain if that helps you learn a little more about his personality.
The boy, doing what he loves to do…
Please leave me your suggestions in the comments section or email me.
