Read Kiddo, Read!

November 10, 2008

This website,, was created by author James Patterson. It helps parents and teachers develop a kid-friendly library. James’ son, Jack, “scoffed at the printed word,” even though his father is a best-selling author and his parents read to him every night. “As Jack, 10, puts it, the problem was the product. ‘With lots of books for kids, their parents want them to read.’ he says. ‘But it’s not something the kid wants to read.'” Thus James put together this website.

It’s also really important for parents to remember that many adult books are written at a 6th grade level, meaning the content is not appropriate. Just something to remember for parents with elementary kids!
