In episode 008 of the Your Kid’s Next Read podcast:
Engaging a reluctant reader
Engaging reluctant readers is not easy. Megan and Allison look at ways to find the right book at the right time to help engage a reluctant reader. Allison shares a fun idea for sparking your kid’s writing fire, and Megan has tips for helping kids choose their own books. Plus, they discuss their uncanny resemblance to Ed Sheeran and Beyonce. No, really.
