vervicy asks:

How do I get my seven(7) year old to developed a love for reading

My 7 year old has just completed her mid term exams and have fallen from a an average of 93 to 89.9.  This is as a result of;
Reading comprehension 78
Communication task       76
Mathematics                  78

I strongly believe these are related, her lack of love for reading is so bad.  I have tried all that I can to help her but she is not getting it at all.  This is the 1st she has received such low grades from kinder until now.  I am really worried and at my end basically.  Can I get some advise please.
