Author James Patterson knows it’s not easy getting kids excited about reading. So a few years ago when he noticed that his 10-year-old son Jack was lukewarm toward books, the best-selling author decided to do something about it. First, he started writing books for kids. And more recently, he launched a new Web site devoted to promoting a love of reading. Patterson’s ReadKiddoRead.com is a user-friendly site designed to help parents, teachers, librarians, and other adults find books that kids of all ages will enjoy. Titles are hand-picked by Patterson and broken down by age and genre, and each comes with mini reviews, a quick list of the book’s themes, recommendations of works similar to the one selected on the site, as well as links to online retailers such as Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Borders.com, and local independent booksellers.
