KINDA HACK #33
Use the Library to Make Summer Reading Easy
Okay, this isn’t so much a hack as it is just a good, old-fashioned suggestion. Your local library might not be open for business as usual this summer. But they probably still have some kind of summer reading program going on. What’s the suggestion, you ask? Sign up for it. ASAP.
Often, summer reading programs offer fun incentives to encourage kids to read as much as possible. The earlier your kids get in on it, the more time they’ll have to get competitive and devour books. (And yes, of course, we want them to read for the love of reading. But a little healthy competition never hurt anyone, did it? Did it??)
