This idea came from Mike Winerip of the New York Times in 2007, sharing his experience as a parent, and is especially helpful for reluctant or picky readers: "I try to find a book that will match their interests and then drop it in their general vicinity. (This can mean picking it up and dropping it several times.)" Try "dropping" appealing books in locations around the house where they might be noticed by just the right reader. If the first location does not work, "drop" it elsewhere--but never say anything!
The Wonders of Asia
The continent of Asia has broader contrasts and a wider range of cultures, languages, and religions than perhaps any other. Books about Asia offer great variety, too. Look around to find books about animals, weather, customs, social and political issues, travel, diaries, humor, adventure, biography, and mystery. Enjoy the many tastes of Asia as you and your family experience this rich continent through reading.
