A summer of (un)fortunate eventsby Charity Tahmaseb
This month, I wrote about encouraging reluctant readers in the Wet Noodle Posse ezine. On Friday, my son came home from his last day at school with not one, not two, but three different summer reading programs.
That’s a lot of reading programs. But I appreciate the effort. One of those programs might just hold the key to a summer’s worth of reading. And one of them I’m happy to share with everyone, or at least kids in first through sixth grade.
Barnes and Noble is sponsoring a Summer of Unfortunate Events reading program. And if you (or rather, your child in first - sixth grade) read eight books, you get one for free. This worries my son Andrew. He’s afraid kids will skip reading the books and simply fill in the form to get a free one. So don’t, okay?
Right now he’s reading football books and books on fossils/rocks/minerals. I’m reading young adult titles, my daughter Kyra is all about the princesses.
So what’s on your summer reading list?
