The goal is to motivate children to read, keep them reading, and then reward them with books they will love, along with helping others at the same time.
Throughout the 6 week time period (June 1-July 20th), they can participate by reading (or being read to) 400+ minutes of any books of their choosing (more prizes for those who go above & beyond!), collecting pledges from friends, neighbors, and relatives to support their reading activity, turning in pledges & choosing their own books, and books for the Lincoln Crisis Pregnancy Center, who will use the donation of books to put in their layettes, and for sibling gifts. Locals, there will also be 3 'fun in the park' days I will host throughout this time period. Attendance is not mandatory for the park days, but they'll be free and fun!
This is a fantastic 'win-win' program that rewards your child for keeping up their summer reading with Usborne books of their choosing, the chance to win extra prizes, and a chance to help children in need in our own community. (Yes, you can do this if you live out of town, too!)
Please contact me with any questions about this program. To sign up, simply submit your email address in the comments with a YES! and I will contact you individually with a reading log that your child can get in the mail, the pledge tracker, and more information about our Fun in the Park days!
