DD1's school has just enabled access to Bug Club, which so far DD is loving. Three books were waiting for her, and she read and enjoyed two of them. However, the third one is a Ben 10 book. She has no interest in Ben 10 whatsoever: she's never watched it (or has ever expressed an interest to); all merchandising has completely passed her by. I know they have to be able to read a wide range of material blah blah blah but seriously, I am not going to be able to get her to read this. I am pretty sure her reading will not suffer if she elects not to read Ben 10 but I don't want have to force her to read it so that she can have something that might engage her.
Do I bother telling the teacher? I am not at all keen on them being expected to read something which such a strong media tie-in (and indeed, didn't originate from a book).
The teacher/administrator has to allocate the books and it's up to them how many books are available at anyone time. The programme lets the teacher know if there are less than 2 books available but this relies on the teacher logging in to check
There are settings so the teacher can allocate a certain number a week. If I were you I'd ask her to try a few pages and if she doesn't like it just send a little note explaining and asking for more books as she had enjoyed it so much.bif you do it in a positive way I'm sure it'll be fine.
Otherwise If you log on and complete the questions then the book will go.
