Thank you public library summer reading program- my children see their reading record card as a challenge to do ALL the reading until every box is checked. Whole summer? Never, they’ll be finished in a week flat.
The genius that added “reading to someone else” as a means to earn extra checks on the chart, I could kiss. So often my younger kids, who can’t yet read alone get discouraged after a day of summer reading when big siblings have a million boxes checked and the littles only have a few. As much as I love the big kids buried in a book with this summer reading challenge, the little ones on my heels all day saying “Can you read, can you read?” makes me feel like a bad Mom. I can only read aloud so many hours in a day! This year, the big kids are begging littles to come listen to a story for those extra check marks, and I’m off the hook!
