Join Today – Summer Reading Challenge

It’s not too late ! Did other summer reading programs pass you by? No Time For Flash Cards ‘ Summer Reading Challenge is so simple and you can join at any point. Can you read with your kids? Can you fill out a form online once a week? Then you can do it.

If the simplicity doesn’t grab you maybe the fact that if children who are struggling readers read as few as 6 books over the summer they can avoid regression (from Scholastic). Or perhaps you want to help us reach our 25, 000 books read goal or maybe the incentive of being entered to win a $50 Amazon.com gift card is the clincher.

Whatever your reasons just read with your kids!

Here are all the details and FAQ.

Oh and here are some dinosaur  , princesses , farm and school books to check out .
