Reading Challenges

Book Reviews should start with the Title and Author of the book, a summary of the book, and an opinion on how you felt about the book--either your favorite part, or an overall impression. Book Review expectations will be different for first graders than for fifth graders!

Activity Challenges will be detailed in the information about the challenge. 

You must complete a challenge correctly, and a Librarian must approve your review to receive an entry into the drawing.

Some challenges will be short term--only available for three weeks--while others will go on all summer. For some, you will have to complete a first challenge for the second to appear.  

Check your Challenge Page on your log to see what Challenges are available for you! 

Challenges are completely optional. Once you complete a Challenge, you will entered into the weekly drawing.

Every Challenge entered must be for a different book.Challenges can be taken from books in your Reading Log...your Reading Log is a list of the books you've read this summer, so for Challenges you should take a book on your list and tell us more about it.

The Summer Reading Deadline will be on Sunday, August 16th.  Your Reading Log and Challenges must all be entered by Midnight. Stay tuned for details on how we will celebrate our summer readers!
