This is the front page from a local newspaper, Jackson County Advocat, talking about this program. Teah and Sophie are in the picture! Kids were wearing bugs costumes.
Our local library started a summer reading program today, called “Catch the reading bug”. There was an opening party, with some face painting, tattoos, story telling, live Madagascar cockroach and tarantula display.
The younger kids will read 100 books, Teah – 50 chapter books to get the prize at the end, plus 5 books of their choice. I am already amazed how motivated they are, reading ferociously.
