Reading interest levels among kindergarten through twelfth grade students is on a decline, according to a study by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2004. While this is the report’s finding, research and sales figures show interest in some genres of student reading such as graphic novels and urban literature is increasing. While some research has shown a decline in reading interest, there is evidence that reading has not declined, but changed. This review of research concerns the change in reading of children and young adults. Student interest is growing in the areas of urban literature, graphic novels, audio books, and series books.
