What is a reading motivator?

I know many of you are wondering, what exactly is a reading motivator? A reader motivator is someone who can help to develop and nurture that love and drive to want to read in a person. It’s one thing to have the skill to read but, you must also have the will to read.(Cambria & Guthrie, NERA Journal, 2010 vol 46). This is why research has shown that one of the best ways that you can help that child to start to love reading is by reading aloud consistently to him, which can help him develop that intrinsic motivation or, that desire to read on his own without anyone having to make him do so.
