Rustlin’ Up Some Reading Fun

By June 6, 2010 culture 3 Comments

Now that the kiddies are out of school, it’s time for summer reading programs. One of the local libraries here always hosts a great kids’ program and also hosts one for kids-at-heart. They call it A.R.K.S.: Adults Reading Kids’ Stuff.

Last year was my first go at it, and I loved it. So I’m back for round two. This year’s program theme has a Wild West flair. They’re looking to round-up some readers with adorable Wanted! posters and fliers.

I have until Monday, August 9, to read 25 books:

[6] Reader’s Choice
[6] Picture Book / Fiction Book
[6] Nonfiction / Biography / Fairy Tale
[2] Series Book / Graphic Novel
[2] Beginning to Read / Easy Reader
[2] Award Book / Book on CD
[1] Questioned Book / Book by Illinois Author

There are prizes to be gained after reading five books and then again after reading 15, with the grand prize coming after reading all 25.

Isn’t it great to get prizes for doing something you wanted to do anyhow? What a treat.

Here’s to the summer reading rodeo!
