Summer Reading programs are a regular part of the local library. Visit your library early in the summer to register your child(ren). Many libraries offer awards, prizes and special celebrations to honor children who meet or exceed their own goals.
2) play a guessing game; notice something without looking at it, give your child a clue to see if s/he can guess (ex: I’m thinking of something with wheels, painted red, and noisy. When s/he guesses correctly, let her/him take a turn!)
