Lucas and I are still in the midst of book five in our odyssey to read all the Harry Potter books out loud back-to-back (which we've been doing before school every day), and we don't want to break for the whole summer, so our plan is to get together a couple times a week to continue our read-aloud time.

I thin Marner's advice about letting the child choose books that fit his interest is sound for any age and ability. A book that sits unopened is not a good choice at all.

A library with a cafe! What will they think of next?

What fun, Adrienne! We have read the Wayside School books several times; I wonder how they'd hold up back to back...

Mary Ann, yes, the cafe is called As You Like It. They sell coffee, snacks, and sandwiches made at a local deli.

This is good advice, my cousin was not sure about books like harry potter for her daughter, but I will tell her about your post, this is useful info, thanks for sharing it.

Both of our local libraries have great summer reading programs. Special events, goodies, lots of incentives. Our kids have really benefited from this over the years. I'm glad these libraries have kept it up even with all the funding cuts...
