Tomorrow, thousands of kids will be lining1 up at bookstores, many others would rather do anything but read a book. However, getting through a summer reading list doesn't have to be a struggle. Francie Alexander of Scholastic2 Books is here with some suggestions.

Goodmorning, Francie.

Hi. Good to be here.

We should mention of the top that Scholastic is the US publisher of Harry3 Potter, which obviously want a lot of people to buy it. There has been a lot of talk about, how much of difference Harry Potter has made for kids. Some say it's been a huge difference. Others, maybe they will read it, then don't continue reading. What do you think?

The evidence is all around us by kids standing4 in line to get the book, they are talking about how it's gonna end, answering the seven questions and making predictions about it. And we did a study with younker vision and we found out that 51% of the kids said Harry Potter was the very first book that they read for fun, and then 75% of Harry readers said, you know what, we are going to keep reading for fun after the series is over. So I think the legacy5 of Harry Potter is gonna go on. I don't even think we've felt the full impact. And it's gonna continue to influence and inspire a generation of readers.

That would indeed be a very good thing. Let's talk about some tips to try to help kids to read. (Yep.) One of them is, you talked about is, don't be afraid to read bad books. What does that mean?

Well not inappropriate books but bad books...that..

Good we got that qualifier in there.

Right, but the kind of books you (don't) aren't gonna do a school book report on. You are not gonna talk to your teacher about books like humor and joke books. We have this great Jokelopedia here. If your kid reads this book, they'll be a stand-up comic by the next week. They just love the dumbest jokes, the silliest jokes, the funniest jokes. And then we have Captain Underpants. Just look at him. Anybody who wears their underwear on the outside is gonna make you laugh and is gonna make you wanna read that book. So those are the kind of "bad" books we were talking about.

Yeah. You also talked about thinking outside the book as well.

Right. You don't always have to just look at the book's cover and have lots of pages. You can look at activities like this. This is so cool. You can make your own super cape6. You can have your own super powers. You can decide what that power would be. And you have to read all the instructions to do it. And after you learn how to read these instructions you will be able to program any technology in the world as you can follow directions.

The superhero starter kit7. I like that. (Yep.) With the red cape included, we also talked about creating some sort of tie-ins .

Right. You know, movie tie-ins are a great way. Read the book, see the movie. Nancy Drew was a summer movie. And it's really great to compare how are the book and the movie alike or what do they have to leave out in the movie. How would you have cast the movie. So it's a great way to deepen understanding.

Oh, it's a good idea to make the kid actually read the book sometimes before they see the movie.

Right. I always say read the book first.(absolutely) Kind of make your own movie first, and then compare it to the one you are gonna see.

Can we bring technology into this at all?

Today's kids are so wired. (Yeah.) And so any time you put them in front of a computer, they're gonna find something to do. So, two great ways to bring technology in. One are our hear books like this, The Golden Compass. This is soon to be a movie, too. you know when you are on those drives that seem to take forever with your kids, (Right!) it's really great when they say keep going because we wanna finish the book. So it's a great way to get kids technologically8 involved and the Internet is another super one. We have a great website at Scholastic.com for summer reading buzz. Kids can log on, keep track of the books they are reading and get more ideas for good books.

Maybe better sometimes listen to a book on tape than watch that DVD which I know a lot of kids wanna do.

Yeah. Because it, it...again, you could make the melo , you know, your own pictures in there. And it's fun for the parents who are driving too.

It's running out of time here but quickly, why don't you give us a suggestion here, the favorite book that you like out this summer.

One of my favorits is right here and it's The Lightning Thief. And that's because, you know, those of us who really don't want the Harry Potter series to end?(right) And we know it's gonna end next week. You're gonna love the character Percy because he is funny, he's got very interesting powers too. And, (Great.) he found an interesting way to get out of prealgebra that all kids will wanna know.

Thank you so much. We will hold that one up for you. It's The Lightning Thief right? It's what it's called. Francie Alexander from Scholastic. Thank you so much.
