enjoy reading? My 8 year old DD loves it and does well. My son on the other hand puts up a fight except for the day we had Muffins for Mom at their school and he was all about trying to read his book to me. At home it is a battle (same with his spelling words!!!) and I do not want him to hate reading at all. How can I make it fun for him? How can I get him excited about reading? We have books on everything from sharks to cars to adventure stories. A wide selection. I am so worried about this.Answer Question

Read to your son every night and make it a special time just for the two of you. Choose topics that interest him. When your son doesn't want to read his school book, suggest that you each take turns reading a few lines. Praise him for his efforts.( togo90210 has the right idea about praise.) Gradually increase the amount of lines your son reads as you read less and less.
