Early Literacy Summer Reading (ages 0-3): Parents read aloud to their little ones. A digital badge is earned for every hour of reading. Parents also receive early literacy tips along the way - simple things they can do at home to help their child develop language skills, love books and be prepared to become readers. Parents complete the program with their child after logging 10 hours of reading by August 4th.
Summer Reading (ages 4-12): Children read at home and log online the amount of time they spend reading. Children may also be read aloud to, or listen to audiobooks and may read any books they choose. This year, children have to embark on a quest through the Enchanted Forest. As they log their reading, they will continue to move further along through an online story in which they are the main character. Encounters with The Big Bad Wolf, a fire-breathing dragon and an evil wizard may pose some difficulties for our heroes. However the Fairy Queen, a unicorn and other magical beings are there to help and earn digital badges. They complete the program by logging 16 hours of reading by August 4th. Those who wish to keep reading can earn a special badge by reading for 17 hours or more.
