*Reluctant – not eager; unwilling; disinclined
*Reader – one that reads
*Solution – the answer to or disposition of a problem
There are nearly 400,000 books published each year in the United States and the United Kingdom, combined. I love to read. I want my children to want to read. I want them to wonder what is written between the covers of some of those books; I want them to pick one up themselves and discover, on their own, whether or not it is something they’re interested in reading. Kid Scoop is the answer for the disinclined, less than eager and occasionally, downright unwilling reader.
Kid Scoop: Reluctant Reader Solution is designed to “spark your child’s own interest in reading.” There are two parts to the Solution:
- 12 full-color issues of Kid Scoop News online magazine and
- 365 PDF formatted worksheets
Online correlates with the printed pages and keeps the child interested. Simply, the more a child practices reading, the better they get at it and the more they want to do it. Vicki Whiting, the creator of Kid Scoop has put together text and activities that have kid-appeal!
Each issue of Kid Scoop News has:
- news-worthy kid profiles
- relating to –
- current events
- the natural world and
- holiday observances
Then, print a page-a-day, every-day, worksheet that corresponds and reinforces the content. Topics include:
- Valentine Fitness
- Wangari Maathai
- Memorial Day
- Constitution Day
- Bubble Gum
- Kitchen Creativity and
- Clay Play
These were great car activities. I knew we were still on task, and they just enjoyed having something fun to occupy their time.

I was given Reluctant Reader Solution to use and review. In a short time, my child has gone from reluctant reader to eager reader, and I’m betting we’ll reach enthusiastic before the year is over!
