One of the things that Camryn looks forward to the most during the summer is our weekly trip to our local library to check out books.

It’s dreadfully hot here in the south during the summer so most days she likes to spend her afternoons inside with her nose in a good book.

Camryn started reading independently when she was three and has loved reading ever since so I thought it might be fun to present her with a little challenge.

Or a big challenge depending on how you look at it.

The challenge is to see if she can read 100 books before school starts on August 19th.

Can she do it?

I’ll be posting the books that she’s read here each week so that you guys can keep track of her progress and I hope that you’ll suggest some books for us to check out from our library too.

Why not start your own summer reading challenge and read along with us?

You can set reading goals with your kiddos and keep us posted on their progress in the comments section below.


Books Read This Week:


She’s off to a good start. Just 91 more books and 56 days to go!

        We are doing good on reading the books, just not logging the minutes! I think we will count books instead šŸ˜‰
