Teen Read Week 2013

Next week, October 13-19 is Teen Read Week.  Teenagers sometimes get so busy that they forget there is more to reading than just textbooks. Teen Read Week aims to remind teens how great reading for pleasure can be and to encourage parents and educators to share the joy of reading with older children as well as with the young ones. Adults should take a look as well. Many books written for young adults today are thought provoking, well written and they give parents an easy subject for discussion with their teenagers. These opportunities to talk can be positive and helpful for families who are finding communication difficult. A good book to start with might be "Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul" by Jack Canfield. Bring your teenager to the library and embark on a joint reading project just for fun.
