UCLA college roomie's adorable kids, Lucia and Julia? (Go Bruins!) Well, for a variety of scheduling reasons, they couldn't participate in their local library's Summer Reading Program (SRP). I said, "Let's have a Food Librarian SRP!"
Lucia and Julia read all the time. Really, if they are awake, they are reading. Every time I see them, they want to read me a book, or tell me about the books they are reading!
For my SRP, I gave them weekly reading related tasks to complete (show me the book you currently reading, draw some pictures and tidy your bookshelf) and sent a box of rewards! The answers are so precious!!! We're a little delayed in our End of Summer Reading Pizza and Frozen Yogurt party...but that's coming soon!
I'm so lucky to have friends with absolutely brilliant children like Lucia and Julia! They are sweet, smart, very very tall, and so much fun. I hope you had a good summer reading program - with the library or your own little reading program! :) - mary the food librarian
