Even the most reluctant readers love the books I sell. I think the beautiful illustrations have a lot to do with it.

Now that we are making books for older kids, it opens up the reading field. :)
It's funny, my son will read chapter books but he also loves our simple Bear books (Bear at Home; Bear About Town; etc.)

With my son's 1st grade class, they have reading homework every single week night. They have to read out loud for 10-20 minutes and then put it in the reading log. It's really making a difference.

I'm setting up a paired reading scheme where the senior pupils will get a qualification at the end of the 12 week programme and the children will get sustained 1-1 support with their reading and their classwork. I'm over the moon. :)

Way to go MM, the children will be delighted.

A bit like the dyslexic atheist who denied the existence of dog!

The books sound great!

Does this mean you and the wife are large people who read much?

Perhaps if you had had a teacher like MM reading would be one of the joys in your life.

Reading is everything, I have always been an avid reader, yet when I was growing up the only reading matter in the house was the daily paper, mothers cook books and a large family bible.

Got to be good. I wish my kids would have taken to reading. Both me and the Mrs are big readers. We also read a lot,

This company started out aiming mostly for the dyslexia market and so all their books are grown up themes with larger text size, off white paper to cut out glare and double spacing between lines. The vocabulary is geared to teens/adults who have a reading age of 7 or 8 or 9 depending on the group of books you select from.

I use them with teens who are reluctant readers and I was talking to a 6th year pupil today who said he was so relieved to see books which had the look of an adult book without making everything swim in front of his eyes. Boys who won't pick up regular books can't put these down.

There are primary level books as well.
