Signed up my three year old today for our Library's summer reading Program. He gets a sticker for every five books he reads and prizes along the way. There are 15 spots total so that makes 75 books to get through this summer. I'm probably more excited about it then he is.
For the older kids the program keeps track of the hours they read instead of tracking the number of books they read. They get a sticker for every hour they read.
I think I will join the fun too. 75 hours of reading in 3 months..... could be difficult with two young kids to keep entertained. We shall see how much I actually accomplish.
Have you set a summer reading goal for you and your family?
Check out your local library and see if they have a summer reading program your kids can enjoy.
Or create your own goals and chart to keep track of your progress.
Barnes and Noble has a summer reading program for kids grade 1 - 6. They earn a free book if they read 8 books. Check it out.
Now get reading!
