Présentation de l'éditeur

Once your children have begun reading for pleasure, which books will keep them reading? Keeping Kids Reading identifies common reading paths that children follow, as well as reading paths that are more unusual.

The book is based on the many interviews Mary Leonhardt conducted with avid readers during her 35 years of teaching high school English. A transcript of many of the interviews is included in the appendix.

She found that, as avid readers grow up, they become more willing to read books outside of their special area of interest. But while children are just beginning to fall in love with books, it is very important to identify what kind of books will bring them into a literate world.

Here are some of the reading paths that Leonhardt identifies:

Science Fiction/Fantasy Readers to History and Political Science

Science Fiction to Science and Math

Comics to Classics to Poetry

Mystery to Nonfiction, like Business or Politics

Science Fiction/Fantasy to History and Literature

Horror Books to Relationship Books

Mysteries and Relationship Books to Classics

Relationship Books to a Special Interest

Family and Magic Books to Women Authors

In addition, Keeping Kids Reading has a chapter devoted to keeping kids writing, as well as a chapter that attempts to answer the most common questions on reading that teachers and parents have asked Leonhardt.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Full of extremely practical advice on raising a reader 15 mai 2000
Par Suzanne Amara - Publié sur Amazon.com
If you love reading the way I do, there is very little more important to you than raising children who love to read. I thought this book was wonderful. The author is obviously passionate about getting kids hooked on reading, and believes that you should do just about anything to acheive this goal. She points out how many parents that don't hesitate to spend tons of money on toys and clothes balk at buying kids books, and points out how books can be found at lawn sales and book sales by the ton for very cheap, and how money spent on books is an investment of the best kind. She advocates letting kids read what they enjoy reading, and letting that lead to reading you find more worthwhile, but wants us to keep in mind that just getting them to READ is the goal. Her kids loved Richie Rich comics (as did I as a kid!) I love her writing style---it's very honest and direct. A great book!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Expanding on her previous message 26 juin 2006
Par Chrijeff - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is Leonhardt's second book, published three years after Parents Who Love Reading, Kids Who Don't: How It Happens and What You Can Do About It (see my review). In it she again shares her experience as a parent and an educator and breaks some new ground from the previous volume. As early as page 19 she flatly states, "Children must love reading. This goal is absolute. No one--teachers, parents, librarians, curriculum directors, book reviewers--must do or recommend anything that puts [it] in jeopardy...[A]ll of the skill exercises that children dislike--but are 'good' for them--are not allowed if they cause a child to dislike reading." She later adds that, as a parent, you shouldn't "try to force [your child] to read [a specific book] or argue her out of her dislike of [it]." From a teacher, this is, of course, a radical stand: doubtless all of us can remember plowing through some such title as "A Tale of Two Cities," or picking Shakespeare to pieces, because they were "required reading" (even some of the librarians I know, who have somehow managed to retain their love of books despite such experiences, recount them with bitterness). Leonhardt explains that in the high-school classes she teaches, any kid can get an A for his weekly reading if he reads 200 or more pages *of a book or books chosen by himself*. She also tells how all the young avid readers she has interviewed either grew up in homes filled with books, or lived within biking (or walking) distance of a library. (Having done both myself, I can testify that they are indispensable--although once a kid is 10 or 12, I would add that bussing distance, or perhaps nearness to the child's school, is also permissible.) And, as if picking up on my previous review, she declares that "Turning kids off...by insisting on too much analysis and criticism is winning a battle only to lose the war...[Many kids are] turned off by English teachers who insist that they analyze difficult poems they don't even like..." She points out, too, that reading often leads to writing, which, since most teens are reluctant to talk to their parents about their troubles (or just can't find the words to express their feelings), may help your kids to stay out of trouble as they enter "the angst-filled teen years. You want them home writing poetry and stories when they're troubled--not looking for the nearest drug dealer." Most important, she describes four basic "reading paths" and explains how to use them to find books that kids--at any age and reading level--can enjoy, books that will make them want to read not only the current title but more books, and eventually adult-level and even "difficult" or "classic" books. While many books about kids' or teens' lit break books into broad categories, such as animal stories, adventure, or nonfiction, this is the first time I've seen anyone try to separate those categories according to the type of kid who may be attracted to them.

As might be expected of a teacher, Leonhardt unfortunately shares the unhealthy fixation we have about college in the US; she describes how, on a visit to Ireland, she told young people there that to get a "good job" here, you have to attend college--which severely disappointed her listeners, who wanted to know about jobs for "ordinary lads like us." (It's true, of course, that we're moving rapidly away from an industrial economy, but there are still plenty of useful, good-paying jobs that can be learned through apprenticeship (like welding or construction) or at community colleges (which continue to prosper).) But the chief problem I have with her is that, for the most part, she tends to ignore a great many fine old books--in all possible paths--in favor of books that are current, recent, or in print, even as she praises libraries for offering the books that aren't. She says, for example, that "...most multicultural literature pushed in the schools is boring even to the group it showcases." Yet I can remember reading many fascinating books about what was then called "children of other lands," books like Robert Davis's Pepperfoot of Thursday market,or Louise Rankin's Daughter of the Mountains (Newbery Library, Puffin)--many of which are now OP, and which had the great merit of (because of their age) not being "dumbed down" as so many more recent titles are. One of her recommendations is to "keep trying poetry," particularly for elementary-schoolers, yet she doesn't suggest themed poetry anthologies like the many assembled by William Cole or the Brewtons. In describing Path #4, "Action/Adventure Reading With Realistic Elements," she laments that readers of this type (almost always boys) find a paucity of books, especially fiction, about sports or military subjects in libraries; for example, she suggests only Matt Christopher, without seeming to realize that he can lead to, say, Lester Chadwick's Baseball Joe series (a Stratemeyer Syndicate offering to be sure, but so are Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, both of which she praises as the kind of books that can ignite a child's love of reading) or Clair Bee's Chip Hilton or John R. Tunis's long string of sports novels. She also totally ignores the girls (often tomboys, if not necessarily sports freaks) who may be of this type (and having been one, I can say without fear of contradiction that they do exist--and they enjoy "boys' books" too). And she doesn't even mention such excellent (and prolific) authors for older readers (boys and girls alike) as Stephen W. Meader and G. A. Henty, both of whom are currently being brought back into print by specialty publishers, or Joseph A. Altsheler (all of them adventure tales focusing on "realistic," as opposed to magical or relationship-oriented, action). It has long seemed to me that if we want our kids to read "good books," we have to make *all* books available to them, and in that Leonhardt and I agree; but so many libraries subscribe to ruthless age-based weeding policies, and so many publishers are so totally focused on the bottom line, that our youngsters grow up completely unaware of the treasure trove of well-written and interesting older titles that we baby-boomers knew and loved. I hope that in a future volume Leonhardt may begin to relate these authors to her "fourfold path." The fact that she hasn't in this one is the reason I give it only a four-star rating: she's definitely on the right track as far as she goes, but she hasn't yet gone quite far enough.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding book--the advice really works 16 juin 2005
Par Unity Dienes - Publié sur Amazon.com
I first read this book about a decade ago when my oldest children were new readers. My husband and I are lifelong avid readers and it is very important to us to share our love of reading with our children. This book has given me so much help in choosing books for my children by helping me to identify their reading "paths". For a while, I kept offering the wrong books to the kids, and I was baffled by their disinterest. This book helped me understand their reading "paths" and made me much more successful at offering books they would like. When I started implementing her advice, their reading took off: in elementary school they were reading about 3 hours a day of books of their own choosing. Now they are older with a much more demanding study schedule, but they still find time to read on their own. Reading is just a natural part of their life. I now have 3 other children as well, and I'm seeing the same kinds of results with them. Even my oldest daughter, who took a while to warm up to reading, is now an avid reader. Believe me, I had my doubts that anything would work with her--she seemed for so long to be so indifferent to reading. And when she did read, it was books which I secretly thought were trashy. But I kept following Leonhardt's advice through the years, and it totally worked. She is positively hooked on reading, and loves even difficult, classical books---as long as they are within her preferred genre. She hasn't yet moved into books outside her interest, but I have faith that it will happen.

Over and over, this author repeats the message to trust your children. That can be so hard to do, which is why I needed to reread the book several times when I first encountered it. But it works! I've watched my children move from easy readers to longer books to Oscar Wilde, and I've known that they're doing it in their own time. If I started worrying that they've been reading "below their level" or conversely that they may be choosing books that are too hard, I remembered the goals of making them love reading, and have a habit of reading, and I realized they were on the right track. I can personally vouch for Leonhardt's assertions that a diet of comic books and what some snobby educators call "twaddle" does *not* ruin a child for great literature, and conversely feeds the fire for the love of reading.

I can't recommend this book enough!

This is the third of Leonhardt's books I've read, and it's as excellent as the other two. Her four rules of reading should be posted in every classroom and pediatrician's office in the country, and I love her alternative to today's standardized testing regime. If only every school could be run and staffed by people like Mary Leonhardt, and she could replace Arne Duncan as SecEd!

This book was excellent. I liked how is stresses the LOVE of reading as the focus. I homeschool 7 children. Most of my children like to read. Some love to read. I liked the resources that the author mentioned in the book. I try many different things to get my kids to read more and enjoy it at the same time. Some of the resources I heard about before, but some were new to me. Overall a very great read.
