Welcome to I Hate Reading
My name is Margaret Wagstaff and I am the Author of the book titled "I Hate Reading". The concept of my books, grew from my own struggles as a child in Primary School learning. I hated reading and had no desire to learn to read, as books held no interest for me! I believe if children can see the importance and value of reading, they will want to learn to read, providing them with the confidence and ability to enjoy reading for many years to come.
Summary of Story
Seven year old Josh hates reading his readers and wants nothing to do with reading. His Mum makes an offer that all the family can stop reading and writing for the whole two weeks of the school holidays. Josh thinks it will be awesome, but as EVERYTHING goes wrong he soon discovers just how important reading is!
Who would enjoy / benefit from this book
This book would be ideal for any child aged between 5-10 years of age. If your child is a reluctant reader, hates reading or you just want your child to value reading then this is the book for you. It is designed to be read by the parent (or teacher) so the child can enjoy the story and focus on the meaning of the story (rather than focusing on individual words).
