Well, it’s over. The swimsuits have been stored and the bedtimes are getting earlier. The first school bell has officially rung and my two littles have entered a new year of learning. We took the summer to spend lots of quality time together as a family and learn about geography, culture and history through travel. Because both girls had to complete a summer reading list as part of a school requirement, I credit the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge for encouraging them to surpass the required reading and learn to truly enjoy it.
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: adventure, magical, long, scary, fun
- The Secret School: fantastic, interesting, realistic, inspiring, heroic
- Lily’s Crossing: historical, sad, friendship, lies, war
- Get Ready for Second Grade, Amber Brown: funny, short, brave, friends, fears
- Nate the Great: funny, mystery, adventure, solving problems, clues
All of the time my girls spent reading was logged into the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge powered by Energizer in order to help achieve a World Record! Did you know that kids across the Nation have read over 208 million minutes so far this Summer? What an accomplishment!
