If you can afford it, I highly recommend buying a Kindle 2 to help your reluctant reader. The Kindle's text-to-speech capability can reinforce reading skills and increase fluency. My husband, Bill, who has some vision loss, is my proof.

I normally don’t review magazines, especially magazines which are not related to homeschooling. However, Bit and Bridle magazine was created by a 15-year-old homeschooler, Emily Echols, of Georgia in 2004. It’s now under the management of a 2006 home school graduate, Mandee Widrick, of New York.
Bit and Bridle is a bi-monthly magazine for horse owners and/or lovers. It’s faith-based and written from a Christian perspective, which makes it a nice gift for children and teens. The articles are written by the staff and freelancers and cover topics such as grooming, breeding, horse-related book reviews, horse-themed devotionals, reader-submitted photos of horses and short stories about horses and horse owners.
I am impressed with the entrepreneurial spirit of these two homeschooled girls. If you like horses, please consider subscribing to this magazine. For more information, see www.bitandbridlemag.com.
