Welcome to Best Blog for Kids Who Hate to Read, a family blog for kids and their parents…and teachers

KIDS
We all read, but 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?

You picked #3 or #4, right? 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’ll 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 about:
  • Books you like
  • Reading games and book sites you think are fun
  • Your ideas about books and reading

PARENTS
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 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 nonfiction book, Worlds Collide in Early America was published in January, 2014.

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

  1. My name is Thomas and I am the Founder of Kids Prize Pack. We are a monthly subscription box for kids (ages 4-12) and have a strong focus on Children’s Literacy and Education. We have just launched our brand for Presales through Indiegogo and are in desperate need of assistance. We have been able to partner with some of the best brands in the business (Scholastic, Iello Games, Faber Castell, Discover w/ Dr. Cool etc…) but we are lacking subscribers. I have placed our Indiegogo link below so you can see all the information about our business. We have 30+ days left in our Campaign and really need word to go out. Our box offers a lot of great items that are way below retail. It also is a Unique way to get kids very interested in reading. James Patterson said that the number one reason kids do not like to read is because they say they can’t find anything interesting. Our goal is to use a different theme every month and base all of our items around that theme. We believe that once the children become excited about getting and enjoy playing with the toys and games they will want to read the included book on the same subject. This means kids are reading more and will want to continue to read more. The different theme each month also allows every Kids Prize Pack feel unique and new.

    If there is any way you can help us promote our brand and reach our subscription goals I would be truly grateful!

  2. Hi,

    I was on the hunt for fire safety resources and came across .

    I really like the work you’ve done!

    Actually, I just put together an infographic about fire safety for kids that contains all the information parents need.

    As your site has information on fire safety, I thought you might enjoy it.

    Let me know if you want to check it out.

    Regards,
    Thomas
