KT's Summer Reading Challenge

I grew up in the country, surrounded by hamlets that formed my school's community.  One of these small towns boasted a post office, a community space, a sub shop, and a small public library.  It was at the McEwensville library that I learned summer was a time to explore the world of books.  In summer I could read anything I wanted, but as a young child, I really didn't know what I wanted to read.  The library in that small town helped me explore, offering fantastic summer reading challenges that I remember fondly to this day.

I want my own children to explore books with abandon, to be motivated to try new kinds of books and to feel proud of what they read.  I want them to spend the summer reading every chance they get.  I want to read with them and let them inspire me.

So together we created a summer reading challenge.

I plan to read alongside them, and we hope that others will join us in this summer fun (sign up here to let us know you accepted the challenge).
