Summer Reading Program

Hi Friends!  For those who have been wondering where we have been for the last week I just wanted to let everyone know we've been having difficulties with the computer I use to blog.  Thankfully, our friend (and computer guru, Paul) had recently spent some time sprucing up our old Mac laptops and while they surely don't run fast (they are almost 10 years old, after all) something is better than nothing!  Needless to say, I have 400 pictures to go through and blog about!  I will do my best to get caught up and share all the fun filled things we've been up to!  And now, without further adieu, I give you today's blogpost...

You know it's summer when the library summer reading program begins!  And while the girls are not yet to the point where they are reading on their own we still have a great time signing up and seeing how many books we can read in one summer.  This year's theme is Dream Big.  The kids who are part of the program will be building ladders to reach to the moon and stars.  For each book read a rung will be added to the ladder.  As you can imagine the girls are super excited to help reach the moon and stars!

We started with filling out their Dream Big Sheets which get to be included in the Dream Big Book. 
We also chose a rubber ducky to take home and bring on adventures with us for a week.  Think Flat Stanley but with a rubber ducky instead.  There are a whole bunch of Library Ducks to choose from.  The first one to accompany us this summer was Indiana Duck (chosen by Grace). 
We took Indiana Duck to Old Sturbridge Village on Sunday.  The girls loved showing him around!


  1. This looks like a great program. I love the traveling duck! I might forward that to our librarian.

  2. The program really is great and the duck is definitely a favorite part for sure! Let me know if your library starts it!
