Information and passport to summer reading

 

Did you know that the Ottawa Public Library has a summer reading program for kids? It’s a great program to encourage kids to read during the summer months.

My kids are young – 2 and 3 – so they are in the toddler program which is a little different than the regular program. In the toddler program, the kids are given an activity book and a passport. For every three books they read they get to add a sticker to their passport. They are traveling the world through books.

When they return the books that they’ve read, they are given that number of marbles. They get to drop the marbles in the marble run – so exciting!

The library also has related programming all summer long. You can find all the details on the library website. It’s not too late to sign up, so head to your nearest branch and get your kids reading!

How do you encourage your children to read when they aren’t in school?
