The Lovereading4Kids comment

In the expert hands of James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein middle school is the funniest place on earth, especially in this series starring Jamie Grimm, the wheelchair-using kid with the super-sharp line in banter. Things should be looking good for Jamie following his triumph in the Planet’s Funniest Kid Comic competition, but part of his prize is the starring role in his own sitcom and Jamie’s not sure he wants that. Plus, there’s a new bully at school who is impervious to Jamie’s secret weapon – comedy. As ever the story moves so smoothly that readers won’t even notice how quickly the pages are turning while Jamie’s resilience as much as his comic timing make him a hugely appealing hero. ~ Andrea Reece

James Patterson's top tips to get your kids - even the most reluctant ones - reading!

* Find books your kids love.

Talk with your child about their interests. Kids read more if they read what they like. E-reader, paperbacks, hard covers, comic books are all fine. Reading is the goal!

* Get a Library Card in your child's name.

Visit your library…the resources they have for the summer are usually terrific. And the Children's Librarian will usually bend over backwards to help your child find fun stuff to read.

* "Buddy Read" together.

Model reading with your child. Read the same books together, and talk about them.

* Create a Reading Club with friends.

It's always more fun if you can share the experience.

* Reward progress.

Set goals with your child, and track their achievements. Give them little "awards" for progress.

* Travel with your books wherever you go.

Take them to the beach, in the car, on vacations, and to the pool. Make the "in between" moments count. Put books everywhere your kids might be bored and want to turn on the TV, such as the breakfast table, the bedside table—wherever.

* Remember: it's up to you to make it fun.

Reading is fun! If it isn't, keep at it till they find books they can't put down. Then reward yourself, Mom and Dad, because you have just given your child the best present you could ever have imagined: the gift of reading—for life.
