Still time for summer readers to collect their t-shirts
Do you have a young reader in your home who's been working on a summer reading contract and is almost there? Did your young reader set a goal of 75 books for the summer then became hooked on reading really thick chapter books and is on book #14? If you answered yes to either question, your child can still collect her Dream Big, Read! t-shirt.
For the reader who is almost at her goal, perhaps a bit more daily reading time will get them there. It's also just fine if she wants to read a few shorter books or graphic novels to finish off her summer list before the August 31 deadline.
If your child fits the latter profile, please urge her to come in and talk to us. We are quite willing to discuss modifying her reading contract because what is most important is that she has been reading all summer. After all, that is the goal of all our summer doings, keeping children reading, using their skills and retaining what they learned in school last year.
