    reluctant reading
    By KT

    I would suggest anything written by Gary Paulsen for true life adventures in nature...Hatchet, etc.(Similar to my side of the mountain). He is a prolific writer and many of his titles are based on his own personal experiences. If they are above your son's level they would certainly make great read alouds to inspire him to continue reading. Gary Paulsen also has a series of shorter easy chapter books I believe are called the Culpepper Adventures. My son was also a reluctant reader, but continued to love to be read to into his highschool years. If you haven't already seen Jim Trelease's The Read Aloud Handbook has great advice along these lines and a super list of suggested book titles.
