Read For the Win!

rftwIt is that time of year once again. Between all the activities planned for our summer of fun and jumping from pool to pool, time needs to be made for this very important summer tradition… The Summer Reading Program! This year’s theme: Read For the Win!

Our local library started sign-ups for the reading program this past Friday. After a brief search on the internet, I found the California Library Association‘s outline for this summer’s reading program. Wow! There are some awesome links and downloads available!

Some suggested activities are local sport events and stuffed animal midnight feasts. There are story time models and age appropriate reading lists available as well. It seems the focus this year is not only on reading some great books, but on keeping our bodies healthy as well. A few activities will base their lessons on sports and games.

Not one to be left out, I too plan to participate in this summer’s reading program (as I usually do). So, as the kiddos are busy filling out their own registration cards, mommy is filling out one of her own. This has become a healthy competition between my kids and myself; we challenge each other to read more and a larger variety of literature. We fill out raffle tickets side-by-side, and support one another in our reading goals.

Last summer I came away with a few fun prizes, a classic read included. Who knows what this summer might bring; free ice cream, pizza, or books to keep? No matter the prize, this summer is sure to be awesome… books and all!

  1. I never thought about signing up for a reading program but will check into it after reading this. I do encourage my children to always have a reading stash piled up in some easily reached corner. When they finish one book, I encourage them to add a new book to the pile. I also keep a pile like this as an example.
