Summer Reading and Your Family

Really like this idea from the Washington Post "On Parenting" Blog. It's a summer reading challenge for the whole family starting now and ending Labor Day.

Our guys have done the program at the local library the past few summers, but I like how this one brings mom & dad in, too, and gets the whole family working towards a goal together.

Do see some complications that we may have to customize. Our three-year-old needs to be read to (and her books are short). Whereas Mom & Dad typically have much longer books. Thinking that reading books *to* the three-year-old will count towards family goal and maybe we can even set some individual quotas for each of our clan of 6 readers. (Am I over-engineering? I do that.)

Also need to think of a good prize. I'm sure I can get lots of help with that at home.
