CHILD-DRIVEN READING

Neil Gaiman, a British fiction writer of children and adult books, in an article highlighting the future of libraries, reading, and day dreaming, emphasizes that children should be allowed to read what they enjoy as opposed to what adults consider good books for them.

“Well-meaning adults can easily destroy a child’s love of reading: stop them reading what they enjoy, or give them worthy-but-dull books that you like, the 21st-century equivalents of Victorian “improving” literature. You’ll wind up with a generation convinced that reading is uncool and worse, unpleasant.”

Here are few stories of parents who developed child-driven love for reading in their bundles of joy! If you have a similar story to share with other parents, please drop us a line at litjoys@gmail.com.
