I find that it is easiest to get my children to read when they are interested in what they are reading. Roy Anthony Shabla, is an esteemed poet and writer with credits in both fiction and non-fiction on various subjects. His book, Child Harold at the Zoo is a story about a regular boy in an irregular world, the story of a divine boy in a mundane world was perfect reading for my son. Very quirky and funny, very real and enchanting.
