I have loved reading forever and so did my child so the concept that some kids don't like to read is hard to understand. I was impressed with Jodi's unique idea for creating an interest in reading. She also addressed the fact that many kids get frustrated when it is hard and just give up. Her little "adventure" gave the initiative to work at it. I hope more parents try this!

I will say it was a very educated story. Teaching children about reading is very important in this world. The earlier they learn the better they will want to read more. The only problem I had was with my kindle well that's not a good one to read it on. I went on my kindle cloud and it was a lot better. Great Story!

Jodi DeSautels has an extraordinary knack for knowing what appeals to children, and if you have a little one at home who is reluctant to read, then Johnny's Adventure Makes Reading Fun is just the ticket. The concept is great, the story is delightful, and it's a wonderful vehicle to use when interacting with your child. Reading together about Johnny's adventure is a way to bond with your young one and, in the process, instill a love of reading that can be enjoyed and doesn't have to be a chore or feel intimidating.

The simple pictures are perfect for a youngster's attention span without being overwhelming to look at. The illustrations are colorful and will no doubt nurture a love of reading and appeal to your son or daughter. Read this story along with your child to encourage him or her to enjoy books and the grand adventures that await between the pages.

My children loved playing with large cardboard boxes when they were young, and the boy in this story does too. With his mother's help, he lets his imagination run wild, learning that books are not just a bunch of hard-to-learn or hard-to-pronounce words written on paper. They are fun, too.

Personally, I like this book for reading as a bedtime story because of its length -- it's short, sweet and to the point. I recommend it to anyone who has a little reader at home.

I thought this was a cute book that will help children not only love to read but may even make a writer out of a few of them. Great story that shows children how to use their imaginations and also lets them know that even if they might not know how to do something you can always learn. Cute illustrations that keep children's minds interested in the story and maybe even get them to try one of their own.
