While some of us are just natural readers and can’t imagine getting through a day without reading, not everyone shares this passion. In fact, those for whom reading is essentially a hobby often find it difficult if not impossible to understand how another person can appear to have an outright aversion to it, and therefore aren’t able to motivate a student/child to pick up reading as a habit. Fortunately there’s a solution.
What are the child/student’s interests
It’s easiest to begin reading on a topic in which a person has a sincere interest. Is the student/child obsessed with Pokemon Go? Take them to a nearby bookstore and let them browse a few Pokemon books! Are they obsessed with anime? Those come in book form as well. Perhaps they just saw a movie which they really enjoyed. If the movie happens to be based on a book, they are in for a treat with the latter since movies are generally unable to capture anywhere near the level of depth given the format and time limit.
