Book Review: I Don’t Like to Read!

Posted on Updated on

I Don’t Like to Read!

written and illustrated by Nancy Carlson

Ages 4-6, 32 pages

Henry just started first grade and loves everything he’s learning except for reading. He never volunteers to read at school, yet he enjoys listening to stories. He says that reading is boring and dumb. Finally, his teacher asks why he dislikes reading and Henry explains that it doesn’t make sense. His teacher says not to worry that people learn to read at their own pace. Henry practices reading at home, reads signs and words around him, and gets more practice at school. At the end, Henry volunteers to read in class. I Don’t Like to Read! is a great book to read for beginning readers and those who may struggle, especially children with dyslexia. The book is simple, so it can be read aloud then the child can read solo.

    Henry reminds me of my son. We use to struggle reading together. He would tell me that he has a headache when its time to practice reading but as soon as he entered Kindergarten, he’s passion and zest for reading just took off and zoomed! Now he loves every moment of it. We read to him every night. Great post and narration. Have a blessed day.

      Oh, it’s so exciting when young ones learn to love reading. You’re creating a special time and memories reading before bed. Raising a reader can be work and a delight. Thanks for your comment & have a great day.

I'd love to hear from you! Have a great day!
