Reviewed by Sefina Hawke for Readers' Favorite
Classics (Why and How We Can Encourage Children to Read Them) by Fiza Pathan is a non-fiction educational book. Classics would appeal most to an audience of adults employed in educationally based or teaching positions, parents, aunts/uncles, grandparents, as well as anyone else who is working to get a child to read classic literature. Classics (Why and How We Can Encourage Children to Read Them) by Fiza Pathan is designed to teach people how to get children to read classic literature and to enjoy it without any negative feeling toward the material.
The first thing I liked about Classics (Why and How We Can Encourage Children to Read Them) was the title Classics. I liked how it got right to the point of the book without any needless wording. I found the organization of the book very helpful to reading and understanding the book and I felt that Fiza Pathan had a writing style that made everything both easy to understand and interesting to the reader. I was interested in reading Classics because I am an after school counselor who works with elementary aged children. The program I work for has access to quite a bit of children’s classic literature, but none of my children are ever interested in it. Classics by Fiza Pathan provided me with all sorts of ideas, guidelines, and techniques for getting my kids interested in classic literature. I am so excited to give what I learned a shot as I feel much better prepared to succeed with the help of Fiza Pathan.
