Andrea wrote about hooking a student on classics...I really feel that
getting a student hooked on reading, any kind of reading is the real task.
Once we get a child hooked on reading we can steer them towards the classics
and usually they are well received. I know that my own children are
learning to love to read and all I have to do is suggest a book and they
jump on it. Sometimes forcing the titles turns a student off but suggesting
books that you truly loved will lead them to the "well".
