It's less important what boys read, as long as they're reading something.
Monroe, New York (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Personalized Books promote self-esteem in children and can help promote and increase reading levels. It is reported that boys have fallen behind in reading which is affecting their success in school and in life. According to the U.S. Department of Education, in every year, for the past 30 years, boys have scored worse than girls in every age group when it came to reading. Statistics show that by eighth grade, boys are 50 percent more likely to be held back than girls. In high school, two-thirds of special education students are boys.
Boys need to see themselves reflected in what they read, they hunger after action-packed adventures featuring superheroes, and sports, monsters, dinosaurs and they definitely prefer non-fiction. KD Novelties provides the reflection that boys crave, offering personalized children’s books featuring their favorite super hero characters. Their books provide the child to become the star of their very own story, building their self-esteem and self-image.
Boys also want to read what they want to read and prefer a print-rich environment where they can search for magazines and books that appeal to them. Experts say that boys need role models such as other boys or men and need to see them reading too. So… Dads and male guardians, let your sons see you read and recommend books to them. KD Novelties adds that it is less important what boys read, as long as they are reading something. Kim Delgado, owner of KD Novelties says, “graphic novels and heavily illustrated books such as their personalized super hero books will surely get boys interested and get them into the reading habit because not only are their stories action packed, it features them as the main character.”
KD Novelties gives tips to parents to understand why boys might be having trouble and scoring low on reading exams and helps them overcome these obstacles.
- Books recommended for boys to read by school officials don’t appeal to them. Let them choose what they want to read. KD Novelties advises to check out their personalized books that will sure spark interest in any child.
- Boys don’t have enough positive male role models for literacy. The majority of adults involved in reading are women; therefore boys might not see reading as a masculine activity.
- Provide the right environment by involving boys into boy book clubs – check your local library for clubs and events.
- Make it a habit to read for at least 15-30 minutes a day, every day.
With overloaded schedules, it is easy to put aside the deeply engaged reading that can make a difference. Make an effort to provide the much needed time where your child can focus on whatever they would like to read. More often than not, parents are concerned that if their child has a 30-minute reading assignment, they won't have time to do the rest of their homework. KD Novelties tells parents that if they can get their child to read for at least half-hour every day, they will become more engaged in reading and the time allotted for homework wouldn’t even become relevant.
