He caught the bug :)

I’m not talking about yet another cold virus (Biscuit is still getting over his last one); I’m talking about the summer reading program at the St. Charles City-County Library District. We read 40 books together over the course of the last month or so to earn some fun prizes. For the first 20 books, he got a bobble-head pullback race car. For the final 20 he got another little colorful, bendy toy but also some bigger prizes like a kid’s meal from Red Robin, two River City Rascals baseball tickets and a certificate of achievement. We had a great time with it and look forward to next year - but of course we’ll be back on Tuesday for more books prizes or not

Here are the books we picked to read for the program (I linked to some of his favorites):

A Tale of Tails; Caterpillar Spring, Butterfly Summer; Curious George at the Zoo; That’s Not My Tractor; My First Book of Animals; All About Baby; Peek-a-Boo Bedtime; Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? Biscuit; Quack, Quack, Who’s That?; God Bless Me; Yawn Like a Hippo!; Winnie the Pooh (Feelings); Thank You (Give Thanks series); Snuggle Up; Sesame Street Baby Party; Sweet Dreams; Numbers with Farm Animals; I Love My Daddy; Sing Praise; The Happy Man and His Dump Truck; Blessing (Give Thanks series); Love You Forever; Praying (Give Thanks series); The Jolly Barnyard; Hush, Little Baby; Guess How Much I Love You; My Little Golden Book About God; Curious George the Movie (the book!); That’s Not My Monster; Daddy Loves Me; Gallop!; That’s Not My Bunny; ABC; Cuddly Baby; No, No, Yes, Yes; Hide-and-Seek Baby; I Can, Can You?; That’s Not My Train; Goodnight Faces

Our library has the same type of program. I write down all the books that my preschoolers "read" with me, and we show them to the library staff each week for a prize. The blow-up beach balls this week were a hit! And, best of all, it teaches kids the joy of reading.
