Our library has a baby summer reading program! They've put together a list of early literacy activities (including reading, narrating, singing, etc), and every time we complete it, I earn an entry for a drawing for a Nook or an iPad. It's a lot of stuff that we do anyway, but I picked up a few new ideas from their list, and if I can win an iPad for doing what I do with my babies...well, yay, LOL.
Do you do summer reading programs with your older kids, with those who have them?
Have you checked your library to see if they have a baby one? I was very surprised, and think it's so neat!
Our library has all-year-round things but only big kid summer programs.
We have "Lap Time" for babies 0-2 years old on Wednesday mornings where they read and interact with the babies/parents. And there are a lot of other things like that for all the age groups up to 12 years old.
Both of my kids are doing the Summer Reading Challenge this year, well Mehkaelie has already completed it and received her prizes lol but Cole's still working on his
I'm going to do the lazy-arse reading program (Your Baby Can Read) so I can put her down to eat once in a while. But no way I could take her and #1 to a library and not get thrown out.. #1 won't sit still for a story unless he's in class or it's all musical. Given our history, I'm not concerned about reading.. both of us parents read by 3, kid #1 read by 2.
