I often hear the following from parents of students in various grades, “My child used to love reading when he/she was little.  Now I can’t remember the last time he or she read for fun.”   This parent isn’t alone in expressing the concern about his/her child’s diminishing interest in reading as he/she grows older. As a teacher of English Language Arts, I have discovered that the main motivation for avid readers is their love for it!  This passion is the main ingredient to creating become lifelong readers.
