For me, it would've been easy as blinking. But surely it depends on the child?!

Lets not get fixated on a number. The child might have a few favourite books that they want to read over and over I know I do.
We need to show our kids how pleasurable reading can be. Take them to the library often and let them read at their own pace.

It depends on the books and on the kids. But it is good for kids to read.

My children read 3 or 4 a week.I read 4 or 5 at a time.Now no one reads.It's depressing. You can tell from the responses on some of these online comments that people have yet to learn the difference between "there,their,and they're, or two,to,and too." Multi task people.
