School is out for summer in many/most locations. Those of us on the West coast have school for a little bit longer but Summer reading programs are already starting. If you have a child 12 and under then you should participate in the Double Dog Dare Summer Reading Program at Borders.

I will be sharing a reading tip every week for four weeks. Here is the first reading tip from Jon Scieszka, author of Robot Zot and Knucklehead: Tall Tales and Almost True Stories of Growing up Scieszka
“If you want to inspire your boy reader, expand your definition of reading to include non-fiction, graphic novels, funny books, wordless books, audio books and magazines. Summer reading is a great time to explore texts that aren’t covered/allowed in school reading.”
Borders and HarperCollins teamed to provided me a Borders gift card in exchange for my posts about the Double-Dog Dare Summer Reading Challenge. It does not affect the fact that I believe in reading to my kids.
