Similarly I bring him to library v often. Sometimes we traveled to few libraries to get the books he wanna. The downside is he can become v obsessed wf reading. We hv been struggling to balance him with other activities. And he only likes to read story books, fiction, comic...but not textbooks.

Very few, if any, kids enjoy textbooks! Adults don't enjoy textbooks either! He needs to find a balance between reading for pleasure and functional reading, and he needs to learn how to discipline himself. For younger kids, a schedule and a timer might be a good start.

what are some of the books that your teenagers are reading nowadays?

apart from recommendations from my kids' tutor, I don't really know what books to buy for my teenagers. it's difficult to know which books out there are suitable. i am also concerned about inappropriate content in teenage books nowadays. has anyone read Looking for Alaska?

It's marketed as a teenage book but it has quite a lot of inappropriate content.. In my opinion.

This is what we normally do. We look for letters while out and about and in the environment around us. When teaching letters and letter sounds, incorporate as many senses as possible. Read a variety of books and make a game out of guessing the genre. Hope this helps!

Well we bought a whole set of encyclopaedia for the first girl. She never touched it. But the second brother who's 6 years now seem to be very interested. Just doesn't know certain words so he'll disturb us asking what's the meaning of this word that word. But maybe the encyclopaedia set can help establish good reading habits
