Inspiring Reluctant Readers with the Kindle for Kids Bundle

Being that it's National Reading Month, I thought now would be a great time to talk about one of our favorite topics, inspiring our children to love reading as much as we do. In my house, for instance, we've been reading to our children at bedtime, at the very least, and often throughout the day, since they were born. I grew up a voracious reader and I think that can be attributed to how early and how often my mom exposed me to reading. So, I've tried to do the same with my own kiddos.

That being said, now that my son has been exposed to video games, sports and any number of things that occupy his time, getting him to sit down and read beyond his nightly bedtime story has become a bit challenging. So, I'm forever on the hunt for ways to make reading more exciting for him. Enter the Kindle for Kids Bundle...Luckily my son is quite the inquisitive little fellow and is always up for learning something new, especially when we're talking about technology, so an e-reader is right up his alley.

Even before I filled up his library with lots of new books, he was pumped to just be able to play around with and figure out the device. It has super cool features like a dictionary lookup to help kids with words they don't know, a vocabulary builder which automatically adds new words that they look up for further practice and even a family sharing option which allows book sharing between parents and kids.

If you have children of a similar mindset, appealing to their tech loving side is a great place to start when attempting to inspire reluctant readers. Next, you want to give them access to books that will further help them on their reading journey. My son is 7 and some stories that were recommended for his age, as well as tweens are:

Secret Coders 
Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library 
Timmy Failure
The Worst Class Trip Ever
The Terrible Two 


And finally, I've found that my son loves reading to his little sister. He feels like a big boy and really enjoys showing off his new found reading skills to her. Getting your child's siblings in on the reading fun just might help too! So, do you too have a reluctant reader at home? How are getting him or her excited to read? I daresay the Kindle for Kids Bundle is definitely worthy trying out as a part of their daily reading routine!
