For online Summer Reading contests, check out the following:
PBS Kids has an online challenge over at IVillage, which includes daily ideas and tips via email as well as prizes up to $1000 cash. Goals are set by you, so you can move at your own pace.
Also, hosted by No Time for Flashcards, is a challenge where you enter weekly the number of books you read total for a chance to win Amazon gift cards. I love their site and turn to it for all kinds of learning and art tutorials and ideas. They have fantastic activities & crafts for all ages - it's perfect for homeschooling families as well as parents that just want some extra things to do with their kids. I highly recommend checking it out.
On our book shelves right now, we're reading:
Lawn to Lawn by Dan Yaccarino - a sweet tale of 4 lawn ornaments that get separated from their owner and friend, and their adventure back to be reunited with her.
Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola - a favorite I remember from my own childhood. We just picked it up from the library, so I shall re-read it before deciding if the magic is too much for the little man or not.
The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall - Sometimes I read young adult fiction for a quick, easy read. This was a fun one that I honestly picked up based solely on the cover art. A positive story of adventurous girls who scoff at the idea of living solely for outer beauty and value their family above things. A good find in the midst of most of modern children's books.
What sits upon your bookshelves right now? Anything you'd recommend?
Although I often link to Amazon for books + other gear, I don't actually have the account set up to make money from your clicks. I'm considering doing that though - has anyone else had any success with having an Amazon Affiliate account?
