My 6-year-old is in kindergarten and starting to learn to read, but it's a struggle. His teacher says he needs to read for a few minutes a day but it's hard - we both work so we don't get home until 6 and bedtime is at 8, not to mention none of us are at our best at that time of day. He loves for us to read to him (Who Was series, Captain Underpants, picture books). But he whines and gets easily discouraged when we ask him to read to us.

Any suggestions on books or games or anything that might make this more enjoyable for all involved? I think he'll be really into reading once he really knows how.
