So, they hate it.

The kids hate treasure Island.  It like pulling teeth to get them to listen to it and we are half way through.  I am thinking I am going to change books,  Would you?

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

why stick with a book you don't enjoy? if they made a good effort (several chapters) and still can't get in to it, then I say don't waste your time.

The language in treasure Island is very tough. The phrasing is old fashioned and your kids just might not be old enough to appreciate it. Set it aside and come back to it in a few years.

My boys loved it!! Maybe your kids aren't ready? I would stop reading and choose something more in their wheel house, then later re-introduce treasure island.
