It is week two of the iVillage PBS Kids Summer Reading Community Challenge. There is still a month of fun left if you and your kids would like to 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.
What we are reading
This week I thought I would share with you some books that Lucy, my four year old, and Max, my six year old, and I have been enjoying reading together.
Here are Lucy’s current favorites:
Here are Max’s current favorites:
Have you downloaded your copy of Fifty Books to Enjoy with Kids, written by Jessica’s of Life as Mom with mother Veronica Getskow, PhD. ? The ebook is a reading guide for parents of kids ages 2 to 8, that gives titles and descriptions of 50 “must read” books for young children, as well as story extension ideas.
The list price for this ebook is $9, but for a limited time it is available for only $5. Please note that I am an affiliate for Life As Mom, and so do receive a portion of the proceeds when you use my links to make your purchase. Thank you!
A question for you: series for a 10 year old girl?
And now, friends, my ten year old daughter Jillian and I have a question for you. She recently finished the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and loved it, and she has read the Harry Potter books and the Little House books. She likes to read book series because she is a pretty quick reader and she enjoys getting to know characters that she can spend time with beyond the two or three days it generally takes her to finish a book. (She’s like her mother that way)
She is looking for another series to start reading this summer. Do you have any suggestions for her? We would both love to know what your tweens and teens are reading this summer.
