Let the reading begin!


So the Booklings stopped off at the local Pierce County library and signed all of its members up for its summer reading program.

Then we went downtown and signed up for Puyallup library’s summer reading program too.  We also took the opportunity to pick up some books to start.  I have never seen the kids so excited to get home so they could start.

They read for 40 minutes and colored two of the 20 minute footsteps on the great Pierce County progress chart. It is a good motivation for them as well (picking good books to read is as well).

So for Drew her books to start are:

  • Mercy Watson to the Rescue
  • Shoeless Joe & Black Betsy
  • The Day the Crayons Quit














Her Favorite of the three books…

Mercy Watson To the Rescue!


For Liam his books were:

  • Shoeless Joe & Black Betsy
  • The Day the Crayons Quit
  • The Day the Crayons Came Home


His Favorite of the three books…

The Day the Crayons Quit!

We talked about this awesome book at dinner since both kids read it (Drew read it to Nash).

They thought that the pink color that was naked and didn’t want to leave the carton was the funniest.

I will post their book reviews in a bit.

Loads of fun and can’t believe how much the kids are reading

The keys?  Proper motivation, Good, Age Appropriate Books!
