Roundup: Books That Don’t Seem Like Books!

Back in this post, we discussed that a great way to get kids of all ages interested in reading is to introduce them to books that don’t read like books. Reading a chapter book can be SO daunting and sometimes, they may be hard to follow if you’re not really into reading them. This can lead kids to get discouraged quickly, and will likely turn them off from reading just as fast. When Guppy first started reading, she really wasn’t into sitting down for a chapter after chapter saga. Instead, we started to buy her books that had a different, more “journal-esque” format to them, and her interest in reading flourished. She told us it was like the character in the book was passing notes to her, and just telling her about their day, rather than trying to understand a narrative in third person. Here are 5 books that have that “Diary” feel to them, that make reading seem more comfortable, and personal to kids that still aren’t “into” reading.
