“TV. If kids are entertained by two letters, imagine the fun they’ll have with twenty-six. Open your child’s imagination. Open a book.” ~Author Unknown

Summer vacation is quickly approaching for school age kids. Many will have local park activities to attend, summer camps, vacations, and various other leisurely interests to pursue. Hopefully another of their summer pastimes will be reading.  As a parent myself with three grown daughters, summer was a time to explore new adventures through books.  I took them to the public library for summer reading programs, encouraged them to raid our own family library, and to joyfully go to a book store to buy their very own books of choice.  Many book stores offer summer programs for students.  In particular, yesterday, I received information on Borders’ 2010 Summer Reading Program: “Double- Dog Dare” I’d like to share with you today.  At the site there is also a letter from the author of the, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series, Jeff Kinney.

Happy “Summer” Reading!
