The Boy Who Wouldn’t Read
Written by Denise Walter McConduit
Illustrated by David Harrington
Age Level: 4 - 8 Grade Level: K – 3
This was one of the first books I recorded in my reading journal back in 2013/2014, but I still remember it. That’s a great thing!
This rhyming story is perfect for young readers. Its main character, a boy who doesn’t want to read. Many new readers struggle with decoding. When given a choice between reading and playing, I’d pick play too!
Our hero tries hiding under a table, but his teacher piles it sky-high with books. Then a wizard appears, and he gives our hero the ultimate solution – he takes away every single word, including the ones on traffic signs. Will our hero finally be happy? You’ll have to read to find out.

Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
