A Fun Book

Sometimes it's hard to get kids, especially boys,  interested in reading. Here's a book reluctant readers are likely to enjoy: Running With The Reservoir Pups, by Colin Bateman. It's not at all like the Series of Unfortunate Events books (though it does take place in England,)  but kids who enjoyed that series will probably like this book. And there will be others about the same characters to enjoy.

I like your blog. Isn't this fun sharing ideas about kids, their reading,writing,and good books.
My career has been centered on this subject. I love writing for kids since I feel I connect easily with them and respect their creativity.
Since kids are open and so in the moment, our writing needs to reflex the joy and fun in life. When kids begin to connect with books in a fun way, they branch out gain confidence and begin to like reading and books.
