SUMMER READING

Violet completed the summer reading program at the library. She received her three free books this weekend. She still has to complete the summer reading for school which is slightly more than what the library required. I won't say this has been an easy task this summer. She can read just fine and has always tested just slightly above or at her reading level. However she just doesn't like to read. She finds it a chore and I find I'm fighting with her most days to go read. So everything I read when Violet was an infant about reading to them early so they'll love books has been wrong. We've read to her every night since she was 6months old and still do. Still no real interest in reading.

Mica loves to read - he's going into 4th grade, and read all the Harry Potter books. I can't get Isaak to read at all. He pretends he can't, and guesses on the words. It frustrates me. It really frustrates Mica when I try and have him work with Isaak. I know he's smart. He was in the gifted program at school. I to read to them often.

I guess some kids are just not as into reading as others. I'm not sure what the deal is.
