Reading Time at Day Camp

By Phyllis Naegeli
1     It was reading time at Maxwell City Day Camp. Kids were sprawled on couches, lying on the floor, or sitting at tables. Some were giggling over their stories. Others were absorbed in theirs. All but one were enjoying the time of rest and reading.
 
2     Maggie, the camp director, and Sam, the group's counselor, stood nearby watching them.
 
3     "Why does Kevin just sit there during reading time?" said Maggie with concern in her voice.
 
4     "He says he doesn't like to read. I've tried to encourage him, but he won't even try," said Sam.
 
5     "Have you shown him all the books in the library?" asked Maggie.
 
6     "I've gone through the library a couple of times with him. It didn't help," said Sam in frustration. "I'm not sure what to do next."
 
7     Maggie's eyes lit up as a memory came to her. "I think I saw something on the Internet the other day - a list of tips to encourage kids to read. I'll be right back," she said as she turned to go to her office. A few minutes later, Maggie returned with some sheets of paper. "Here," she said handing the list to Sam. "Maybe some of these will help."
 
8     "Thanks! I'll look them over tonight. I hope I can find something to help Kevin."
 
9     "I need to get back to the office," said Maggie. "Let me know how things go."
