I can't believe she didn't go for the folk of the faraway tree, that is my all time favourite!

Glad she is finally reading under cover

The Mad House

I am still struggling to ignite the spark in Maxi, mini on the other hand reads anything and everything

(This is my second attempt at leaving a comment as the first one didn't seem to work but I said...)

Whatever it takes....
But it is great when you nearly give up hope that your offspring won't inherit your love of literature and suddenly they've found something that sparks it off.

Rosie Scribble

The folk of the faraway tree is my all-time favourite too! I'm hoping she'll go back to it and give it another go. I think the writing on the page was a bit dense for her, so hopefully next year she'll find it easier to read.

Rosie Scribble

I think it takes time, Jen. IJ still doesn't have the same love of reading that I do but hopefully it will develop over time.

Rosie Scribble

Thanks for persevering with my comments system Selina.

I think with reading it can just take one book to really get them interested, but it's finding that one book. I'm hoping we've got there now. I couldn't live without literature, although my daughter would say the same about her Nintendo Wii. How times have changed.

Susan Mann

Keep up the good work, she will get there. Gruesome and Bloodsocks was my favourite book at her age. x

Mayfair Mum

Glad she's found something she loves. Other favourites that spring to mind that might also appeal to her age group are:
Mrs Pepperpot (Alf Proysen)
The Naughtiest Girl in the School (Enid Blyton)
My Naughty Little Sister (Dorothy Edwards & Shirley Hughes) - guest star, Bad Harry might appeal!
Oh and don't forget the Just William stories (Richmal Crompton) - he must be the original Horrid Henry!

I'd rather they read under the duvet than keep popping down "for a glass of water" or "because I'm hungry" just to sneak a peek at the television LOL !!
