dig into summer reading at the library

June 1st - August 10th, the Charleston County Public Libraries are up and running with their great annual reading program. I first signed my twins up for this when they were two ( there's even a program for babies!) and we have participated every year since. There are prizes and incentives along the way as you log in your summer books. We have come a long way from the days when my two used to sign their log books with a fingerprint from a stamp pad before they could even write!

Step 1, head to the library and pick up one of these brochures and register your children to receive a reading log for each (a great way to get some summer writing in too). Then pick some great books to read out loud together and some to read alone. The books pictured here were recommended by our school for emerging 4th graders. Here are some great links to other reading lists for young children of various ages that I love:
Oprah's reading list for children
100 great books for children
and love, love, love this one organized by theme reading rockets list

Step 2, get cracking early and keep 'em reading all summer. It sure flies by fast! *A special thank you to Ms. E and Ms. T for instilling a genuine love of reading!
