Getting my 4 year old to read

My August-born son is not remotely interested in reading. Since he's started in reception, we've been quite relaxed with him - reading regularly, enjoying books together, working on his ORT key words from school, but not pushing him. He is still on the level he started on in Sept, whilst all his peers keep moving up into new levels.

I'm not overly worried, but concerned that I'm not doing enough with him at home.

Can anyone recommend anything / offer words of wisdom?!

Thanks so much

Thanks everyone - some really helpful tips and advice. I know i need to stop worrying. My daughter is in year 2, summer born, and quite keen on reading, so the difference was even more noticeable. We'll just keep doing what we're doing, but I think the ebooks suggested by simpson is great as he loves the computer.... smile
