Dear Nidhi, there maybe many children who are not very good readers. He may like the idea of reading but may lose patience half way. I was like that as a child. Try and get him books with short stories which will help in keeping his attention till the end. You could also try & split the stories up so that he reads say 10 pages a day. He can take his time to finish the stories. Do encourage him and try resisting reading to him. Hope this helps :)
