Welcome to Best
Blog for Kids Who Hate to Read
, a family blog for kids
and their parents. I started this blog in April, 2011. It has been and continues
to be a wonderful experience for me.

February 22, 2013, I switched from WordPress to Blogger. 
Then March 8, 2013, I switched again – this time to Blogcast with GoDaddy. I plan to stay here for a while! 

If you subscribed through my WordPress blog, I hope you will subscribe again on this new site.

I write for 3 audiences: kids, parents and teachers. I hope you will read,
enjoy, comment (please!) and share.


all read, but we have different reading attitudes:

  1. I love reading!
  2. I like reading.
  3. Reading is okay but I can think of 9 other things I’d rather
    do first.
  4. I hate reading.

Which one are you?

Did you pick #3 or #4?
That’s OK. You may not like reading because you just haven’t found the right
books. I want to help you with that.

This blog is a place
where I can tell you about:

  • Books
    for kids I think are fun and worth reading
  • Fun
    reading games and book sites
  • My
    ideas about books and reading

And I want you to tell me

  • Books
    you like
  • Reading
    games and book sites you think are fun
  • Your
    ideas about books and reading



This blog is also for
you. Do you have a reluctant or struggling reader at home?

I’m a retired teacher who
has spent the last 30 years working with these unenthusiastic readers. My hope
is to reach out and connect them with books they want to read.
If you see something here that may catch your child’s interest, please show him
or her this site.

I’m also a writer of kids’ books. I’ve written two
middle grade novels and I’m working on a third one, plus an easy reader mystery
series. My books aren’t published … yet. But when any of them are,
I’ll let you know!

In addition to learning about
books, reading games and book sites that your family may enjoy, I hope you’ll
share your family favorites.


This is a place for you, too. I hope you will find books and ideas for your students. Please tell about:

  • Books
    that your students love
  • Reading
    games and book sites that your students enjoy
  • Your
    ideas about books and reading

This is a
three-day-a-week blog:

Wednesday:    Parent Post
Friday:            Fun Stuff

I’m glad you are here!


Final note: I have been with this blog site just since the beginning of March. I am transferring my old posts over to this site. But until I get them all transferred, you can still visit my old site at   http://gailterp.blogspot.com
