Children’s Book Week to the rescue!
No doubt, summer is a time for swimming pools, beaches, and hanging out with friends. But too much tuning out makes returning to school in the fall that much more difficult. Yes, September looks a long way away in May.
It’ll look a lot closer in August.
Plus, maybe I’m weird, but some of my best summer memories involved reading. I was a mystery girl, so you could easily find me across the street, in my favorite tree, reading Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden.
Adult swim at the pool was boring for most kids. Me, I just took out a book.
And the world of kids literature – from picture books to YA – is so much bigger than it used to be. Fantasy, mystery, coming-of-age – it’s all out there. Just check out the YA and MG sections on Amazon, or at your local bricks-and-mortar store. Kid’s literature is where it’s at.
So here’s my challenge for your summer: Get your kid to read at least one book a month. For bonus points, try an author you (or your child) has never read before.
It’ll open a whole new world to them – guaranteed.
Oh, and I did I mention prizes? See the Rafflecopter widget below (open to US/Canada/Australia/GB)!
