Who is your sports fanatic in your home? I have football fanatic walking the halls of my home these days – He is in his third year of playing peewee football and just can’t seem to get enough of the game. Unfortunately he is not as motivated to read as he is to be on the football field. So, as the mom who wants her kids to have a life long love for reading my goal is to find resources that motivate him to read . You guessed it - take a football loving kid and hand him a SI Kids magazine and you quickly have a motivated reader. Mommy goal accomplished. How about you do you have a sports fanatic kid in your home?
