I’ve always been an avid reader. As for writing, books like Harriet the Spy inspired me to take detailed notes on my world. But not all kids love to pick up a novel or a pen. There’s one special approach that’s led to success in our household. Sometimes, it comes with an element of raucous rock concert fun. Other times, it’s more like a fabulous small club discovery. Curious? Read my full piece in this week’s Washington Post: “Is Your Child a Reluctant Reader/Writer? Take Them to a Show.” And if you like it, please comment on the Post site. The more comments, the more likely I am to get invited back.
(Bonus: The boy got his picture in the paper! Hey, any incentive to get the kids to read my work.)
