Even after I realized that reading was a great learning tool, it was still hard to sit down and read. I had to come up with incentives for myself – finish chapter, get a Little Debbie Snack Cake; finish a book, get a new fishing pole. Prizes and treats are a good way to motivate anyone; as time goes on make it more challenging to earn loot. After a while, the habit of reading will take root and then reading will be a reward all by itself. Hopefully!
