Additional Information

Once your children have begun reading for pleasure, which books will keep them reading? Keeping Kids Reading identifies common reading paths that children follow, as well as reading paths that are more unusual.

The book is based on the many interviews Mary Leonhardt conducted with avid readers during her 35 years of teaching high school English. A transcript of many of the interviews is included in the appendix.

She found that, as avid readers grow up, they become more willing to read books outside of their special area of interest. But while children are just beginning to fall in love with books, it is very important to identify what kind of books will bring them into a literate world.

Here are some of the reading paths that Leonhardt identifies:

Science Fiction/Fantasy Readers to History and Political Science

Science Fiction to Science and Math

Comics to Classics to Poetry

Mystery to Nonfiction, like Business or Politics

Science Fiction/Fantasy to History and Literature

Horror Books to Relationship Books

Mysteries and Relationship Books to Classics

Relationship Books to a Special Interest

Family and Magic Books to Women Authors

In addition, Keeping Kids Reading has a chapter devoted to keeping kids writing, as well as a chapter that attempts to answer the most common questions on reading that teachers and parents have asked Leonhardt.
