Even though this book is primarily designed for parents to help their young sons to develop a reading habit, I have found this book so inspiring, practical, and enlightening for myself, as an adult. I didn’t pay much attention to reading growing up, and I never really understood why it was important – until now!
The author goes to incredible lengths to explain the details of this subject, especially from the mindset perspective. Her passion, dedication, and expertise shine through each page. I loved reading about her experiences as a middle school teacher – she truly understands boys, their mindset, and the reading habit at such a deep level. I cannot believe I could relate to so many examples and stories presented in this book, and I really wish I had such an amazing and dedicated person as my teacher, helping me develop a reading habit while growing up.
Luckily, it’s never too late. I started developing my own reading habit thanks to this book, because it provides not only comprehensive information, but also a collection of empowering tools and techniques to implement this information right away!
If you’re a parent of a 9 – 14 year-old boy and you follow the steps carefully designed and brilliantly presented in this book, you will positively transform your son’s life! Developing a daily reading habit is critical to ensure your son’s future success, now more than ever, in our global, knowledge-based economy!
I HIGHLY recommend this transformational book to parents of young boys, but also to anyone who wants to capitalize on the astounding benefits of reading!
The book is clear and concice and highlights her knowledge and depth of experience in the field. She walks you through how to create a supportive reading environment, prioritise reading in your sons life, set up a plan and hit the ground running. She also provides a downloadable workbook to help. Awesome.
I would not only encourage you to read and implement this book, but to share it with friends and family members who have sons. Such a great resource!
