Reading

My 11year old Daughter does not like to read at all. She use to read when she was younger but not much, how can i get her to like to read.  I have tried lots of things to make it fun, nothing seems to work.  Anything you can tell me would help.  Thanks

Have you purchased any of those "teen" magazines?  Young girls usually love that type of material.  Also, most computer work involves reading as well as writing.  As for books that young ladies would like - does anyone have any suggestions?  Perhaps her teacher might be able to give you some ideas here.

I make reading about time that we spend together.  My parents never promoted me to read, and I feel it is the foundation for their education.  
Read to her.
You read a page, she reads a page.
Go to the library together.
It will take a lot of time and effort on your part.
Good luck!
