Today, I am super excited to present to you a guest post from author Maxwell Eaton of The Adventures of Max and Pinky fame. Maxwell's Max and Pinky books are delightful gems full of humor that I think make them the perfect books to attract reluctant readers. So, I asked Max if he'd be willing to write a guest post about reaching out to reluctant readers. Well, can I just say that when I received his responses, I was thrilled at the creativity, effort, and humor that Maxwell put into the post. Check it out!
In discussing reluctant readers I’ve decided to be a “wreluctant writer” and quickly sketch out a few tips for any parents out there with their own little Ricky at home. Of course, I’m not a child behavior or literacy expert, but I do remember what it was like to be at the age where getting me to read was like taking me to get a haircut (a long, drawn out, hopeless battle where fifteen bucks goes down the drain and somebody’s ear gets cut). Oh to be twenty-three again. Anyway, I hope these little suggestions help or, at the very least, don’t result in any lawsuits. Then I’d have to reluctantly read the fine print on the subpoena, and that isn’t fun at any age. Enjoy!
Thank you so much Maxwell for all of the fabulous tips and for taking the time to present them in such a unique and fun way! You're a rock star!
