They did it!!!!!!!!!! I am so glad to announce that Scholastic has officially passed their goal for the amount of minutes read by kids!
My son has recently fallen in love with a series that I never would of thought he would be into! See, Little Man is a police, mechanic, science person. But the books that will have him drop everything to read is far from any of those! So I would like to introduce you to the The Puppy Place: Muttley written by Ellen Miles.
This summer Scholastic (sponsor) is reaching for the stars! They have brought back their Summer Reading Challenge in hopes to beat the 2013 World Record of 176,438,473 minutes. And by the looks of their page they can easily do that! I think this program is great because as a para I see it all to often where a child who doesn’t read during the summer falls behind on reading and has to redo some lessons. This helps keep them motivated and reading!
