The statistics are irrefutable — reading should come first in our priorities for children. For a myriad of reasons, however, it's difficult for parents and educators to motivate kids (especially pre-teens and teens!) to put reading first. What works for one child doesn't work for another, others have significant reading challenges, and finally “ let's face it “ some are simply incorrigible.
But where there are new ideas, there is hope! After conducting a nationwide poll Susie Boyce developed many new ideas on: 1) How to motivate kids to read, and 2) How to tackle reading challenges (both big and small) in children. Susie will share all of these ideas plus several successful (and since this is real life, not so successful) attempts to get her own kids to learn to love books and reading.
She Is Dallas Info: Susie Boyce will speak at the Flower Mound Library, 3030 Broadmoor Lane in Flower Mound on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. This talk is for parents and educators and not intended for children. For more information about the presentation, please call the Flower Mound Library at 972-874-6200 or visit the Flower Mound Library website. For more information about Susie Boyce, you can check out her website, Momsensical: Navigating the Insanity.
This nationwide poll also resulted in a fabulous book list for kids and teens that Susie has affectionately titled, Moms Weigh In: Books We Adore. In addition to this list, Susie will share more of her favorite book and reading resources that can assist parents and educators as they help the children in their lives be more successful (and enthusiastic!) readers.
Feedback indicates that those who attend Susie’s presentations sometimes laugh, sometimes cry and always take lots of notes. So plan accordingly!
