Here we are in week 2 of our Summer Reading Challenge. Almost 300 of you are signed up and many of you are reading more minutes than I am!
Here’s our update:
Mrs. Janson has read 40 books! Her favorite book was Duck on a Bike by David Shannon. It can be found with the Easy picture books under call number E Shannon. Mrs. Janson says it’s a great book for anyone who is learning to ride their bicycle.
I have read 525 minutes so far this summer! That’s 8.5 hours! My favorite book this week is the one I just started for the Dare-To-Dream book club, Hoot by Carl Hiaasen. Here’s a summary from amazon.com “In his first novel for a younger audience, Carl Hiaasen (Basket Case, etc.) plunges readers right into the middle of an ecological mystery, made up of endangered miniature owls, the Mother Paula’s All-American Pancake House scheduled to be built over their burrows, and the owls’ unlikely allies–three middle school kids determined to beat the screwed-up adult system. Hiaasen’s tongue is firmly in cheek as he successfully cuts his slapstick sense of humor down to kid-size. Sure to be a hoot, er, hit with middle school mystery fans.”
The Dare-To-Dream book club is for children who have completed grades 3-6. We will meet on Friday June 29. Bring your lunch and I’ll provide dessert. We’ll discuss the book and make a craft. Hope to see you there! Send me an email if you want to join! firstname.lastname@example.org
That’s our update for this week. Remember, if you beat us, you will be invited to an ice cream party. Keep up the good work and invite a friend. Anyone who gets a friend to join the summer reading club will receive a tattoo. Just let us know the next time you come in.
