Do you know a reluctant middle grade reader? How do you get them to read?
Laura Lambert on Brightly described a bit of the challenge:
“I guess I always expected middle grade to be the sweet spot of reading. Kids are skilled enough to read on their own and opinionated enough to choose their own genres and titles. This is when it was all supposed to catch fire. Independent! Reading! We started off strong with some Raina Telgemeier — a huge favorite. And then … nothing.”(Brightly).
