Posts Tagged ‘summer reading’

As I have mentioned before I’m an avid follower of the blog entitled:  No Time For Flashcards.

I turned to it the other day hoping to find a nice easy craft to do for Father’s day on Sunday and found this link that I hadn’t noticed before!  Allison is having a summer reading contest.

I checked everything and it seems to be valid for Canadians too…at least I didn’t see anything saying that it wasn’t…and besides what’s the worst that could happen?  You spend time reading with your child?  hehe I don’t think that’s bad at all!

So Allison is giving away a $50 Amazon gift certificate as the summer reading contest prize.

Check out the link here to see what it’s all about:  www.notimeforflashcards.com

Basically you read as many books as you can with your child and even if you read the same book three times it still counts as three books being read.  There are dates that you submit how many you have read for that week.  I believe the contest goes till the end of August.

I found a cool chart and we started today!  We have read five books.  Remember: reading is a fun thing!  Don’t pressure your child into reading books with you.  Reading books is rewarding and doesn’t need to be looked on as a chore.  Let your child’s imagination run…don’t read fast just to get the book done.  Enjoy the time with your child.

(Ps.  Your child doesn’t have to read it…even if you have younger children you can do this…just as long as a book is being read)

So who’s with me?  Let’s get some reading done!!!  I’d love to hear what books are your child’s favourite!!

Also..I have been thinking of doing this for a while now.  Allison does it on her blog and I have gotten a lot of cool books from her reviews.  Starting probably in August (once the summer dies down a bit) I’m going to start doing children’s book reviews as well as my adult ones.   So that’s something to be looking forward to!

Blessing:  I love to read and I’m glad I can share this with Little E!
