Summer can be a real page-turner. Even getting the kid to read can be a real adventure.
It’s that time of year, a field trip to shop for the dreaded Summer Reading list. That's the list of required reading his school requests from selected book titles.
It’s my favorite thing to do – go to a book store and buy books for my son’s summer reading list.
He has to come with us. That’s part of the fun – because frankly, he dreads it and then by the time we’re leaving the store – he’s a happy camper. He even thanks us! It’s that transformation from dreary task to enthused reader that is fun to witness.
We usually make an evening of it, and he ends up exploring the entire store.
It’s on our schedule of things to do this week.
What about you – did you already get the books required? Or do your create your own summer reading list for your child.
Do you tap into local resources like the library – or do you make it a shopping spree?
