  10. 10. James Patterson, Author Heres a simple but powerful truth that many parents and schools dont act on: The more kids read, the better readers they become. The best way to get kids reading more is to give them books that theyll gobble up -- and that will make them ask for another. When kids continuously read, they get better at it. “How to Get Your Kid to Become a Fanatic Reader” by James Patterson http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/28/opinion/patterson-kids-readingK.C.
