How To Get Kids To Read More by Having Fun

How to Turn Your Book Club into a Spectacular Event
By Mayra Calvani
ISBN 9781606192290
Twitlight Times Books, Kingsport, TN

Reviewed originally for Amazon by Amazon Vine Voice Carolyn Howard-Johnson

In these times when people say children don't read enough, along comes Mayra Calvani with this adorable little how-to book. What an idea! Turn reading into a party! A social event! A project! I hope teachers everywhere grab onto this idea as a way to encourage their students to read. And (of course!) use this booklet as their guide.


The reviewer  is an award-winning poet, novelist, and author of the HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers. Naturally she would like to see more young people grow up as avid readers.
