  The Reading Corner

Oh my! When November rolls in, so does the reminder that the year is nearly over! With just weeks to spare and lots to do as holidays approach, a healthy reading habit can fall by the wayside. However, busy days are the best days to fit in some time with a book. Here are some reading challenge ideas to keep your kids turning pages.

 · Did you know that November is Picture Book Month? To celebrate, read a picture book you’ve never read before.

· Tuesday, November 6, is Election Day in the United States! Read a book about voting or running for office.

· Read a book that is a game or uses games as part of its story.

· Celebrate National Native American Heritage Month by reading a book about Native American history or experience.

· Read a book about characters — people, animals, or mythical creatures! — who cook or eat a big meal.

· Don’t let the cooler weather keep you from exploring the world! Read an adventure story about a character who travels to new places.

· Read a book about a family. Then talk to your family about how the book’s family is similar to and different from your own.

· Read a graphic novel that has been adapted from a fiction or nonfiction book.

· If you have a family gathering this month, add something to your pre-dinner ritual: Ask each person to name a book they’re thankful for.

· Get in the spirit of World Kindness Day, November 13, by sharing a memory of when someone was kind to you. Then read a book about kindness and compassion.


Happy Reading and don’t forget to join us for our Candyland Reading/Math Night on Tuesday, November 13th from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm! There will be some very fun activities and great raffles.  Hope to see everyone there!
