for a fourth grade boy. We're looking to build his reading courage. He can probably read above his age level (he reads a ton of non fiction with no issues) but gets hung up on fiction. Lack of pictures, lack of interest in finding out what the story is about, etc are all problems I am trying to conquer. He usually really enjoys books once he finishes them but it's a fight to get him to try. He wants to stop going above a level 3 Lego book. Lol
I'm all for kids choosing what they read, but he isn't really trying at all. I really feel like he needs to actually give fiction a shot before writing it off completely.
Do you have a kid that prefers only fiction or nonfiction?
