My daughter on the other hand is a reluctant reader. She reads well, but loses her enthusiasm if the book goes on too long. So she does fine with textbook chapters, non-fiction focused topic books, and shorter books. I tried graphic novels with her, but she finds them too visually confusing. I've also noticed that she does better with larger text, so the Kindle reader and iBook readers have been a lifesaver for homeschool reading.
Just this week she had to start reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond for her Oak Meadow 5th grade curriculum. I had her reading it out of an old paper copy of the book (b/c it was cheap). I should have known better. It's a long book with small type on old yellowed paper. She just hated it. I finally caved in and got the Audible version and let her listen to it on her Kindle. Now she loves it and listens to 2 chapters a day.
A part of me wants to enforce the idea of visual reading and get her used to reading long books. Another part of me is glad that any form of audible book, digital or CD, is available for her to listen to so that she can learn to simply enjoy the story, even when it's a long story.
I just wish our local public library had books on CD available so I wouldn't have to pay for digital listening versions.
