District 833 wants to see more boys interested in books
Devin Carlton, Oltman Junior High School seventh-grader, didn't like reading in sixth grade. This year, in Amy Johnson's reading class, he changed his mind.
"I love reading," he said. "I really like fantasy books and I get to choose the books I read."
Fellow seventh-grader Shane Ferlaak said he hasn't been convinced yet. He reads what is necessary for school assignments, but "I'm not a reader," he said.
