Reluctant Readers Book List
Using high interest reading materials can help spark an interest in reading for children with learning difficulties. High interest texts are usually fairly non-traditional. They often focus on “edgy” topics or include a great deal of action. In addition, they may not look like a traditional book. Some resources that offer variety and engagement include graphic novels, audio books, magazines or even non-fiction items like “fun facts”. The goal in using high interest reading material is to jump start a reluctant reader’s interest in reading. We've put together a list of suggested reading of items that can be found at your local Wyndham Library or come in and talk to your Children’s librarian.
