Reading isn’t just relaxing and peaceful; it also increases intelligence, improves communication skills, and even helps readers to better understand others’ feelings and emotions. And reading is fun too! But what are we to do for children who don’t like it? Will these reluctant readers ever find joy in books? Yes, it’s absolutely possible with the right approach. Here are five steps to get you started. 1. Read to Them If you want to get kids reading, begin by sharing books on a regular basis. For younger children, a story before bed is always welcome.

Perhaps dig out a book of interest after dinner and share a chapter or a short story. With Halloween approaching,...

The Amazing World of Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs have filled us with wonder since the first monstrous bones were pulled from the earth hundreds of years ago. For centuries, we imagined dinosaurs as giant, clumsy brutes—but science has since revealed them to be so much more. They were living, breathing animals that had moments of great power and ferocity, but also periods of quiet beauty. Of course, science cannot tell us how they behaved or how they interacted with their environments. For that, we need our imaginations. Amazing paleoart reflects our current knowledge of these breathtaking creatures. The Amazing World of Dinosaurs is found at the intersection where imagination and knowledge meet. It features breathtaking artwork that accurately reflects our current knowledge. These captivating images are paired with James Kuether’s research and insights, which make dinosaurs and the Mesozoic Era accessible to anyone. Let James Kuether take you on an Illustrated Journey Through the Mesozoic Era. From famous creatures like Tyrannosaurus rex to lesser-known...
