Summer Fun Idea #1

Does your library have a summer reading program?
Ours does. The kids keep track of how many minutes they read and every so often they can trade those "minutes" in for prizes. The ultimate prize being, of course, a new book.

It is incredibly cool, but it makes me feel very guilty...

Prizes for doing something that we love and would do anyway?

How crazy is that?

I LOVE that one of the kiddos is reading a dictionary. :) My ds3 likes his child's version, too.

Your library is MUCH cooler than ours! We are getting ducky squirt guns, a plush pen, and a book. The only cool thing is that I get to participate, too. So we will be getting FIVE books this year!
Julie, I took that picture because I used to read the dictionary and the encyclopedia all the time when I was a kid. I would read anything that stood still long enough. lol

Barnes and Noble has pretty easy one, too. You get a book for reading 8 "age appropriate" books.

The Barnes and Noble thing is apparently a well-kept secret... I couldn't find it from the homepage at all. So here is the link to it
