HOW IT WORKS
Choose five to ten donated books (based on availability) and record them on your reading log. You may read as many books as you like! You may also check out books from the local library. Each time you read a book, have a parent or guardian initial next to each book read. Once the log is complete bring it along with you to our scheduled meeting held at the end of the summer to be rewarded a prize. You have the option of keeping the books, sharing with a friend or family member or returning the books. Passing along the books is an effort to encourage others to read by sharing your experience. BONUS: Write a one page summary about each book and receive an additional prize!
