How is your summer reading going? Have you visited the public library yet? How about reading book online? Have you stopped by a yard sale or thrift store to find some great used books? How about browsing the shelves at your local bookstore?
Well…my summer reading is off to a great start. I’ve been reading a chapter book by Polly Horvath called Northward to the Moon. I checked it out from the Watkinsville library. I also visited the Winterville library and the Athens library with my 5-month old daughter, Alora. She signed up for the summer reading program and has already earned her first prize, her name on the wall for reading 10 books. Stop by the Athens Library and see if you can find her name. Here’s a clue….it’s on a frog.
If you’re a Barrow parent, I would love to hear how your summer reading is going with your child. Leave a comment and tell us. If you’re not a Barrow family, tell us how your summer reading is going. Especially tell us if you have any great resources for summer reading or incentives.
Before I go, I wanted to share one more reading incentive you might take advantage of this summer. Borders has a reading challenge to earn a free book. All you have to do is read 10 books and you get a free book. Why not take advantage of all these great prizes? You’re already reading anyway! Happy summer!
