Some people are born readers. I am not one of those people. Despite all the hard work of my mother and great teachers, I could barely read until the fourth grade. Even once I wasn’t stumbling over words, I didn’t like to read very much until I read one book: Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. After that I was hooked. So I was excited by this week’s book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Some of the books are books that could very well be a kids lightbulb moment book, others, like Chopsticks and Why We Broke Up, I added to the list because of the pictures. Every book on this list is one that I think could make a reluctant reader appreciate books more.
Let me know in the comments what books I’ve missed and if their is one book that helped you like to read.
