Sharing interesting books is a great way to develop a joy of reading. Interesting plots, charismatic characters, and imaginative settings hook readers, as well as eventful adventures, unraveled mysteries, explored human dramas. Listening to books is also a great way for dyslexics to access stories. Here are some of my family’s favorites:
