We look forward to our summer reading programs each year and last week we got to pick up the first of our prizes. At our usual (and favorite) library we logged our minutes of reading and got to pick out a brand new book to keep. This is my favorite of the programs, but the kids like the neighboring library that gives out trophies better :-).
This day Ella picked out 6 or 7 chapter books and had read them all by the next Wednesday when we went back for new ones. I am so excited that she has really caught the reading bug finally. Acting out some of the Magic Tree House books at school at the end of the year helped her getting started I think, but on our last visit we tried out some new series, so we'll see how she likes those as well.
