The iVillage PBS Kids Summer Reading Community Challenge kicked off this week. You and your kids can sign up for the free six week program here at the website. Once you sign up you’ll begin receiving daily emails with literacy tips and activities from Scholastic and PBS Kids. To add to the fun there are daily contests and prizes, too.
Canadian readers: a Simple Kids reader let me know about a great free Summer reading program for you, as well. Steph says, “If you are in Canada, you can also sign up at any public library for the TD Summer Reading Club.”

On Jillian”s list (age 10)
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine In Jillian”s words, “I thought it was really good. I like princess books where the princess isn”t just a normal princess but where she goes out and takes her life into her own hands. The book was kind of like the movie, which I like, but there were more forest creatures in the book and more details. I read the book in two days because it was so good I wanted to see what happened next.”
