Kids Summer Reading Challenge

Found this summer reading challenge for kids. Looks easy enough to accomplish and will make going to the library and picking books out a lot easier. Found this on Pinterest; original challenge can be found at http://www.notimeforflashcards.com/2013/05/summer-reading-bucket-list.html.


In addition to this reading challenge, the base library's annual Reading Summer Program starts June 23rd and runs through Labor Day so the kids will be participating in that. The program's "prizes" are awarded by how much time you spend reading, so that it evens the playing field for kids who read slower than average or who read longer books. It is also categorized according to age ranges. There is also an adult category, so Mama has a new goal in mind, hahahaha.
