By now, most people know how important it is to read to your child(ren) and I love how Timberdoodle has summer and school year reading challenges. This summer the challenge is to read at least 20 different books set in at least 20 different countries.
Books set in different countries exposes your child to the great diversity of climates, cultures, and heritages experienced all over the world. And if you are stuck on what books to read, Timberdoodle has an E-book for purchase on their website with over 3000 suggested titles. The suggested books are mostly geared for preschool through middle school, which makes it quick and easy to expose your child to many different cultures before the start of the new school year. I have loved this E-book as it makes it so much easier to reserve books at my local library.
Timberdoodle even has an Around the Reading Challenge Bundle that comes with the e-book I mentioned above, but also a washable world map tablecloth. The tablecloth measures 50×33, making it perfect for smaller tables, kid zones on a bigger table, or even hand it on the wall. You could use the tablecloth to color in each country as you read a book, see where distant relatives live, or as an interactive map for any and all school work. Once you are done the map can be popped in the wash and the ink comes out completely, ready for the next adventure.
Better yet, Timberdoodle offers prizes for participating in the Summer Reading Challenge and no purchase is necessary. Every family that finishes their list by September 6, 2021 (and submits their list) gets 200 reward points. Which is the equivalent of a $10 Timberdoodle gift certificate. And one grand prize winner will receive a $100 Timberdoodle Gift Certificate. Head on over to Timberdoodle for full details.
