Monsters and Other Scary
le=”FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS; FONT-SIZE: large”>Books to Read
When I was looking for books to encourage my kids to read, I went with books that could follow their interests. With my oldest daughter it was princess books. Anything that told a story about princesses, and she was hooked. With my son, he only loved non-fiction books. He especially loved books that gave short and quick answers to questions about science. My youngest daughter was fascinated by Camelot and anything to do with Merlin. She loved historical fiction and still does today.
My grandson is fascinated by Harry Potter and is now reading Book 7, after having read all the first 6 books.
In finding ways to get your child interested in reading, I came across this great website:
In keeping with the next holiday of Halloween, they suggest many scary storybooks.
Here are a few I found and some they suggested:
