I have a few plans to make sure reading is a priority for all my kiddos this summer:
- Summer Reading programs! First, though, I need to reconcile our account at the library. Let's just say several items were forgotten about in the midst of third baby, starting work, kid in school. Oops! Thank goodness I get to use food pantry items to write off some book fees this week. :)
- Allowing the kids to utilize the Hooked on Phonics app on my iPad. I downloaded this app when it was free last year. It's AMAZING! When my kids want iPad time, the rule is that they'll needs to work through a unit and read a book or two.
- Read books that peak interests and that are fun! Reading MUST be fun in order to keep kids interested.
Daredevil Duck is a neat book that I have enjoyed reading with the kids. (Because let's me honest. Books need to interest kids AND parents when we have to read them over and over, right?). It's a fun adventure following a little duck confront many of the things that are kind of scary for him on a quest to be a brave, daredevil duck!
Not only is the story great and teaches a good lesson, the book itself is fun. So many pages have a lift-a-flap features that really add to the story. We're able to see Daredevil Duck as he wants to be seen, but also how he sees himself. And then there's the page that opens up super huge. That's Belle's favorite she says.
Daredevil Duck is being released on this month-- just in time to pick up a copy to add to your summer reading! Follow along on the Blog Tour!
