Which reminds me, I'm working on my plan for summer reading with my kids. I'm thinking of doing a Battle of the Books thing again but more organized and under control than last year (that was a bit of a disaster).
Does anyone else have a fantastic idea to keep your kids reading for the summer? I know for some, they will just be grateful if their kids read. I will be grateful if I can get my kids to read something other than these:
So I'd love any ideas about fun, family-oriented, summer-reading programs (I hesitate to say the word "programs"—it makes reading sound like a drag!)
