Are you still waiting for your child to fall in love with reading? Well, the Reluctant Reader Solution is here to help. It is 365 fun-filled pages of activities, games, puzzles, and more to get your child excited about reading. Included in the Reluctant Reader Solution, is Kid Scoop News. Set up like a child's newspaper, it also offers profiles, activities, games, and more to pique your child's interest in the written word. Many sections of the newspaper offer correlations to standard benchmarks in education.

The Queen's Assessment:
The Reluctant Reader Solution is a pdf download. It is full of great mini-lessons to get your child interested in reading. Each lesson is 5-7 pages long and will give you 365 days of fun learning for your child. There are a wide variety of subjects from holiday, critters, sports, health, animals, and more. There is something for everyone! I plan to keep these handy for this summer. We won't be on our regular school schedule. I think these will help to keep the prince doing some educational activities without thinking he is "doing school."

PhotobucketKid Scoop News was our favorite part of this review. You can see a black and white sample here. This comes as part of the Reluctant Reader Solution or can be purchased separately. Kid Scoop News can be viewed online in its entirety, but should probably be printed off to make it easier to complete the activities. 

The jokes and games really appealed to the prince. He loves mazes and word searches, and there were plenty to keep his attention. At a special introductory price of $15 for 12 issues per year, this is a great bargain to keep the "I'm bored" whines at bay!

Another handy component of the Kid Scoop website is the email sign up. You can get 30 FREE exercises and ideas to make reading fun. You will receive one tip per day directly in your email box.
