When I found out about the summer reading program at our public library last week, I couldn’t wait to share the news with my daughter. We love to read in my family. I read to both my babies while I was pregnant. My daughter started reading when she was 4 years old and continues her love for books now. I am working to pass the love for books on to my son. I think reading to kids early helps them enjoy the idea of reading. I love the fact that she prefers to have a good old fashion book her hand instead of E-book.
Earlier this week I took the kiddos to our local library to sign up for Rahm’s Readers Summer Learning Challenge. The summer reading challenge is giving away 12 books to each child that is registered aged 0-13. It is open to all Chicago residents that are interested. Sign up began on Monday, June 20th and will continue through September 1. However the free books are available while supplies last.
