Rate this:
Reaching Reluctant Young Readers features 150 middle-grade books. Each profiled title has the potential to hook the reluctant reader and lure them to read the entire book. To specifically encourage elementary and middle-school-age reluctant children to read, there is first a pitch to get the reader's attention. That is followed by a short reading passage to "set the hook" and encourage the young person to read the rest of the book on their own. Further, the book contains several hundred additional recommended titles. The books selected for this collection were chosen following the criteria of reluctant reader books created by the Quick Picks committee sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association. While these guidelines were designed for young adult books, they also work well for middle-grade books. The criteria include: -clear writing (no convoluted long sentences with sophisticated vocabulary), -high interest "hook" in the first few pages, -well-defined characters, -interesting plot, and -familiar themes.
