My most distinct memories of summertime as a kid are of summer reading for the Provo library. Browsing up and down each aisle, filling my arms till I could hardly add another book to the top of the stack. We'd come home with piles of books each week. I'd lay mine out side by side and order them with my top picks first and set out my plan. Then I'd fly through them just as quick as I could, recording each title on my summer reading chart - each book bringing me closer to the next prize. A McDonalds ice cream cone coupon? A Wendy's frosty? A bookmark? Pencil?
Landon has discovered chapter books
and is thrilled with both the idea that he can read chapter books
and with the fun of crossing off each picture of his summer reading chart and taking it in for a prize. Hooray for summer reading :)
