2018 Kids Reading Challenge

Reading is one of the most important things that kids can do! It not only fuels their imaginations, but it helps to expand their vocabulary as well. We should encourage our kids to read more, and one of the ways that I have pushed my children to read something different. We tend to fall into categories when it comes to reading. I have one child that will read nothing but “army stuff” if I let him. I created this challenge for them, but then thought, why not share it?? We could all use some encouragement when it comes to reading. There is a challenge posted for the adults as well Challenge Your Reading in 2018
