Every summer about this time, I remember the libraries have programs for reading with prizes to encourage reading. My mom tells me I began doing this in the card catalog days of my grade school years, and most summers I’ve remembered to sign my kids up before the end of July. (The libraries are always generous and let me fill in hours I’ve missed recording because I signed up late.)
In my area, I have two library systems offer rewards. Both have reading programs for people of all ages. If I were really greedy, I could also join the Tacoma Public Library program.
I am not that greedy and that would also be too many things for my busy brain to manage.
Quinton longs for the Toys R Us gift card, and I am checking off the books I read in hopes of winning the Tacoma Rainiers Summit Club tickets or the Kindle Fire. It could happen!
Even if it doesn’t, I’m sure to get in a few lovely hours reading by myself and with my kiddo. Most recently we discovered how much we adore Lyle the Crocodile books by Bernard Waber and I am digging into Graceling by Kristin Cashore.
May you sink good books this summer and maybe even win a prize-
