We are now in the middle of Teen Read Week. The American Library Association (ALA) suggests ways that parents can encourage teens to read:
*Read the same books your teens read and then talk about them together.
*Keep books with teen appeal around - in the car, near the TV, and in the bathroom, for instance.
*Visit a bookstore or library with your child.
*Turn off the television set one evening a week and spend the time reading.
*Let your kids see you reading for pleasure.
A list of books for teens can be accessed at the ALA's Web site: www.ala.org/yalsa/booklists
