Last week we stopped in to our local UW Bookstore and signed up for their Summer Reading Rocks! program.
Most reading programs ask kids to record the amount of time they spend reading, then after 500 minutes (or whatever) they get a prize.
My crew acts like that’s such a chore, and it makes me feel like a nag!
I like the Summer Reading Rocks! program because they count how many books the kids read, and right off the bat my kids we’re ALL OVER that challenge.
We go back for prizes after every five books they read, plus we got a coupon for 20% off any children’s book.
And the best part is they get these awesome lanyards to keep their reading logs in! Now maybe they’ll stop stealing mine.
