Growing up you can find me up in a tree reading a book when there was laundry and cleaning to be done in the house!! I LOVE to read and still do!! Just have to find the time to sneak away from 3 little ones now. I hope to pass on to them my love of reading.
Thanks to Saving Dollars and Sense for compiling this list for my readers! I can not believe that summer is just around the corner and my almost 5 year old (will be 5 in 4 days!!!) will be starting Kindergarten this fall. Where does the time go?
Book Adventure - Sylvan offers this FREE reading incentive program. Basically your child reads books and then takes a simple comprehension quiz to make sure they understood what they read. The quiz is usually about 10 questions long. They earn points based on how much they remember from reading the book.
There are hundreds of books to choose from in all reading levels. These are common books that can be found at your local library. Once they have earned enough points they can trade them in for some really neat prizes!
