I can't remember when or where you posted the idea about the 100 Book Project, but we immediately went down to Hobby Lobby and bought a poster board and stickers and started one too. It was such a cute idea, and honestly it is something she talks about every morning. We really enjoy our book time in the evenings, and this project has made it even better. Thank you for the idea. I let her pick her reward at the end, and she wanted to go bowling. To be honest, I don't want it to end. She has already said she doesn't want to do it again right now, she wants a new project. So, now off to pinterest I go to find something new and just as fun.
For mine (and from what I can see, Heather's is about the same), we did a 100 box chart and for every book read, he gets a sticker in a box. Had to be a different book each time, which was a challenge for him since he likes to read the same one for a few days in a row. I would write the name of the book right on the chart. That become hard to reference back after 50ish, so I ended up putting it on a spreadsheet and alphabetizing (yes I did a spreadsheet ). Once I did that, I seperated the read books in a different pile. Next time, I'll do that from the start and avoid the spreadsheet.
It was cool, because it brought him back to books he hadn't looked at in awhile and introduced him to some of the new ones I had bought but he hadn't bothered much with.
The "prize" was his choice and something we picked when we first got started.
We do the same. A different book each time. We also found ourselves digging through the playroom finding books we hadn't read in a year or so. And many many trips to the library. She can't wait to go bowling. Some nights we read just one book, but some evenings we read 10. No rules on how many in a day.. just that she has to pick different books each day. We have found some really cool books to read. We read one a few days ago that was written by Mikhail Baryshnikov.. i had no idea he wrote children's books. She loses interest at the library during the picking process, so we get creative. Last week she picked 10 books with pink covers.. her idea. This week we picked 10 books from the animal section. I am learning a lot and hope she is too.
