I remember my parents used to buy me a book every week (Mr Men was one collection) and we would sit and read it together and then talk about the book. I was a very strong reader and as I got older the books at school were extremely boring and really quite easy (thin books)... at home i started reading novels (200+pages) with my mum. I decided to take one into class and ask if I could use that to get signed off in my reading book. I read a whole series and also leant them to my friends. My primary teacher was happy for me to do that as at least I was reading and more importantly enjoying what i was reading. I was 9/10 but maybe you could ask your daughters teacher if she could bring in her own books?
