December is here and that means it’s time for the Winter Reading Challenge!
Adults, parents, and students can create accounts online to track reading minutes, practice writing book reviews, and read book reviews completed by their peers. There is also an option to register a class or group—perfect for daytime teachers, after-school leaders, and child care centers. With the certainty of more chilly days ahead, why not use the indoor time to start a reading habit for the whole family?
The Winter Reading Challenge has four age-based tracks: one for birth-5 years (babies, toddlers, and Pre-K), 6-11 years (school aged), 12-18 years (teens), and 19+ (adults). Each track includes activities people can do to earn badges and have fun learning (and relaxing!) during the winter break. Need more motivation? We know that reading regularly helps children build communication skills and increases their empathy. Reading also improves focus and memory in adults. If the cold weather has you feeling blue, check out some of our new titles and dive into the Winter Reading Challenge!
Here’s how it works:
- Register to earn your first badge.
- Track how many minutes you read, write book reviews, and complete activities to earn badges!
- Receive a chance to win the mystery raffle for each badge you complete.
How many badges can you earn? Let us know which books you'll be reading this month in the comments below.
