And the crowd goes wild at the finish line!

My kids are sporting medals today, courtesy of the BC Library Association’s 2011 Kids Summer Reading Club.

To earn a medal, each child has to read for at least 15 minutes a day for 50 days. We worked diligently all summer last year, only to lose our forms in the flood. This year, we started early in order to account for possible natural disasters.

Now, not only are the kids proud owners of Savour Each Word medals, they also won a free book each. I’d tell you what those books were, except both of them chose trash. And as a card-carrying member of the ARMR, and the DWDA (Down With Dora Alliance), I’m not allowed to talk about it.
