WINTER READING CHALLENGE
Join my Reading Challenge for the Winter months...
"Snow Many Books" to READ!
The challenge has 20 types of books! Geared towards kids aged 6-12. The best part is that you should be able to easily find books for your child for each of these suggestions in your home library or school library. Encourage your kids to reach for authors with whom they may be unfamiliar. This challenge is intended to help your children "read outside the box".
I'd love to see some pictures of you and your child experiencing books...please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's make this a family fun event!
