TDSRC Summer Reading Challenge (Ages 3–10)
How many books or book chapters can YOU read this summer?
To participate, children colour in a creature on their recording sheet every time they read a book or chapter. Once a sheet is full, kids send a photo of the sheet in via email or drop it off at their local branch.
There will be a draw for small prizes every two weeks and a BIG prize draw at the end of the summer.
Challenge closes August 22nd.
