It seems that I'm not the only one interested in helping children become readers. Are you familiar with Max Elliot Anderson? Here is his comment of kind words to me:

"I always appreciate finding others who are concerned about helping children become readers.
That's because I grew up as a reluctant reader. And my father was the author of over 70 books. Now I write action-adventure and mystery books, especially for tween boys. My blog, Books for boys, is # 4 on Google today.
Keep up your good work!"

Right away Max lets you know what his blog is all about and why you will want to stay awhile and drink fresh inspiration from his writing skills!

"I feel better suited for writing action-adventures and mysteries for tweens, especially boys... I find writing for kids to be the most fun, and very easy. So far I’ve never experienced writer’s block." more of the interview with Max:
