Podcast: Encouraging Teens to Read

Today’s post actually isn’t about my typical library podcast. Rather, this is one I did with my Bryce Moore hat on, as a guest on a podcast run by my cousin over at Pulling Curls. Here’s the description she gives for it. If that sounds like something up your alley, give it a listen. It was a fun discussion, and I got the chance to recommend some great books.:

Elementary aged kids LOVE to read, but that love seems to wane as our kids get older. How do we get teenagers to read, and what are some good books to suggest if you can’t seem to get them interested in reading?

In this episode we’re going to talk about:

  • Why the love of reading lessens as kids get older
  • The things we’re doing wrong with our teens that makes them not read.
  • Emphasize that reading shouldn’t be approached as a punishment.
  • Why teens need to keep reading
