Think Your Son Or Daughter Doesn’t Like to Read? Probably Not…

November 6th, 2017

A common complaint and regret from parents is that their son or daughter doesn’t like to read. I’d bet that’s not the case for the vast majority. Often, the trouble is that their kid doesn’t like to read a book in the (Colors) language of their parent, or even teacher. If Colors is like speaking four different languages, test the theory and get them a book that fits their Color!

At a recent Leadership Colors seminar, the top Usborne Books people came up with THE best list for kids of all four Colors and ages. Reading has lifetime benefits for anyone. Test the theory and find one or two of these and your view may be very different.

To find them, contact an Usborne rep or online at: usborneonline.ca (for Canada) and usborne.com for the U.S.
