Summer Reading Club


It's officially the last day of school! Which is bitter sweet. But we are definitely looking forward to some summer fun and lots of reading! Signing up to our library's summer reading club is on our Summer Fun Passport list this year ... and we got a tick! This is our 3rd year running. You can tell we love it. Here's this year's booklet ...

Inside there is an opportunity to collaborate on a story.

On the other side is a place to keep track of all the titles you read. A great keepsake! And some sticker fun too (as a designer, I'm thinking this would be such a fun project to work on!) At the bottom right you see the calendar for marking off every day you read for 15 minutes (or get read to). Piece of cake. After 50 days, you get a medal!

They also have weekly programs including an altered book workshop this year that sounds interesting as well as scavenger hunts and family movies on Monday afternoons. Oh, and weekly contests where you can win books! Spud has one a book each year so far. I hope everyone has access to something as cool as this! But if not, it's pretty inspiring for coming up with your own club.

And here is our running list of books we want to read kept on shelfari. What's on your list this summer?

We took the Summer Bucket List Challenge. Our working list is here.
