We have a long history of participating in Summer Reading programs. This year, I think I am going to design my own, with rewards that will appeal to Ben. I’ll share more about that next week, along with Ben’s summer reading list, since I’m still working out all of the details. But you don’t have to do that. There are plenty of programs out there ready to reward your kids for reading this summer.
