Can it really be this easy? Heck, it’s just four words! Why not give it a try? These thoughts were twirling in my head after hearing a father explain on national television how he encourages his children to read.
Simply put, he asks his kids what they are reading. He doesn’t toss the question out every Friday morning at the breakfast table. His approach is casual and off-the-cuff. The last thing he wants is his kids thinking he’s interrogating them about their reading. He simply wants them to know he’s interested. This father believes his attentiveness to and enthusiasm for his children’s reading motivates them to keep reading. Makes sense to me!
Now it’s my turn to ask, “What are you reading?” It’s summer! I hope it’s something fun!
Last night, I finished Killer Ambition by Marcia Clark. Zowee!
