A little something the kids do each summer is '100 books of summer'.
A challenge we (kids and I) came up with last summer to see if they could do it!
They both surpassed the 100 books mark!
Now I have had people ask me if i'm crazy..but we're all BIG BIG readers (Hero was read to starting at day 1 in the NICU), and there aren't many rules to the challenge, it's meant to be fun! and there is a small prize for making it to 100 (like a webkinz or something)..Hero's books tend to be bigger since she is 11, so i let her include graphic novels, etc..Last year Orangie's challenge also included the bedtime stories she read us...BUT as you can see she's already almost full on the chart to 25 and it's only July 3rd, and that's NOT including bedtime books this year! PHEW!
and YES. the library staff at the 2 nearby pretty much know us all by name! In the summer we're there pretty much every 2 days!
OH! and the bristolboard is mainly white right now because as the summer goes on they put on cool things about certain books, or doodle or draw something from a book, etc..
