Summer Reading Program

This summer Maggie participated in our local library's summer reading program. She had to read (or have read to her) six books in order to reach her goal. Lucky for us, we do that in a day so it wasn't hard for her to finish. After reading the first two books Maggie earned a plastic rainbow Slinky. We keep it in the car and she loves playing with it. Since we don't have stairs, who knows when she'll learn what Slinkys are really all about. After she finished her last four books, she got to pick out either another toy or a book. Smart girl that she is, Maggie chose a new hardcover book called We All Have a Heritage. It's out of her age range now, but in a year I think it'll be relevant. The library's summer reading program is over for this year, but we hope all of Maggie's friends participate next year. It's great!

What a great reader. You could try the slinky on your ledge in the backyard or your raised edge of the veg patch. Or just keep it in the car for now.

That's not a bad idea. Maybe we'll try that.
