Summer Reading Challenges

Now that the school year is over, kids are looking forward to all sorts of fun summer activities and vacations.  Reading can easily fall off a child’s list of priorities once he or she steps outside of the classroom.  Here are two ways to challenge your little bookworms to continue reading throughout the summer months. 

Barnes & Noble – Kids earn a FREE book when they read any 8 books.  Simply download the reading journal from B&N’s website and record your child’s books.  Then turn in the completed journal at any B&N store to receive a free book.

Borders Books – Kids earn a FREE book when they read any 10 books.  Simply download the form from Borders’ website and record your child’s books.  Then turn in the completed form at any Borders store to receive a free book.

Don’t forget to check out your public library too!  They almost always offer summer reading programs.  R ydan and Lily are signed up for quite a few events at ours over the summer, including a Family Storytime, an Alpaca Storytime (with a real alpaca!), a special Baby Storytime for Miss Lily, and a storytime with Cylo from the Lancaster Barnstormers for Rydan.

If you are doing something fun and creative over the summer to challenge your little one to keep reading, tell us about it!

Hi, We are combining with our Languages Department in preparing a poster entitled One World, Many Stories. We found your image of the world encircled by children in your blog for Summer Reading on May 12. As we require permission for copyright purposes, would it be possible to use this image in our poster? If so, what attribution would we use?

Cheers Helen
