Little Bean is participating in the summer reading club through Border's Bookstore. He read ten books and then was able to go to the store and choose a free book from their list. This was very motivating for him! He chose a chapter book called Miss Daisy is Crazy, which is NOT one of my favorite books at all, but he deserved it! Barnes and Noble Bookstore is also doing a summer reading club. You can check theirs out here. We will definitely be doing the one with our library as well.
Little Bean's reading has really taken off. He uses Bob Books sets 3 and 4, and can read Dr. Suess books and other beginning readers from the 1st and 2nd grade section at the library. It's strange how he finally just started reading for fun rather than just for phonics lessons. I'm so proud of him, but more importantly, he is proud of himself and his accomplishments!
