This week I have been choosing books to read that I think will have lots of kid appeal. My reluctant readers are hardest to motivate. The books that they are most likely to read are those that have fast-moving action and adventure, contain lots of humor, or have silly characters or a ridiculous plot. My reluctant readers also don't have the stamina for long chapter books so they prefer shorter books and those with lots of visuals. Graphic novels are a big hit with my reluctant readers. I think the books on my reading list this week will be appealing to kids and be of interest to some of my more reluctant readers.
