Welcome guest blogger, Betsy B, and her two boys Sean and Matthew.
Last summer, Sean had a goal to read 100 hours for our library’s Summer Reading program. He took a little too long and missed out on getting a t-shirt, so this year he is challenging himself to get his hours in early.
Matthew’s goal of 10 hours is a little more modest, and he is equally excited to reach his goal and earn a free book.
School is officially out now and both the boys are making great progress on their reading goals. Matthew is able to read pretty well for a 6 year old, but still likes to be read to. When I’m not available, he is happy to look at books for a long time.
Sean read this book in a day. I am learning that I need to have plenty of options on hand for him.
Part of the Summer Reading program includes some pretty great activities. We live between two branches and I like to scope out what they each offer. There are so many to choose from! We have been to one already. It was a Minecraft party where 8 computers were hooked up for kids to play together. The boys have played Minecraft with their cousins before, but this was a different experience for them since it was on computers instead of devices (iPads, phones, etc.)
They had a great time and are looking forward to the next Minecraft afternoon in July. If you want to try something fun at your library this summer, check out the calendar of events at KRL!
