Beschreibung:

One Saturday morning at breakfast, Kaye Newton listened to her fourteen- year-old daughter declare that she would rather vacuum pretzel crumbs from the family minivan, than read a book for pleasure. Newton recognized that while her three children were competent readers, they chose not to read during their free time. Her kids, ages ten, eleven, and fourteen, and many of their friends spent their days snapchatting, texting, and playing "e;important"e; Xbox matches. Since Newton is a booklover, this absence of reading bothered her. Research shows that reading is fundamental for success in school and the workplace, and it's also life-enhancing. But could a regular parent, who is not a teacher or librarian, lead her screen-loving kids to peruse books for pleasure? And could adolescents who claim "e;I'm just not a reader"e; as they settle in front of their favorite Netflix series, be transformed into readers? Could this metamorphizes possibly be enjoyable?The answer is Yes! After spending over a year testing reading advice, Newton shares what really works to get kids to read for fun. She includes practical guidance, lists of books that hook teens and preteens, and even describes how to make the required reading for school more enjoyable. A blend of memoir, research, and experimentation, How to get your Screen-Loving Kids to Read a Book for Pleasure enables parents, grandparents, and caregivers to successfully promote reading for fun.
