Making Literature Come Alive for Reluctant Readers with Rob Reid
Reluctant readers are often turned off to reading and books because they have difficulty reading or they are bored with the books offered to them, or sometimes a combination of these factors. Rob Reid will discuss strategies to bring these children into the library through outreach and then keep them interested in literary-based activities once they are at the library. Some of the strategies include reading aloud specific passages, storytelling, and music.
