Summer Reading Programs Rock!

Nicholas always participates in the summer reading programs at the library. He has gotten all kinds of prizes like free tickets to the circus and Texas Rangers game, free ice cream, free kids meals at Chick-Fil-A, Jason's Deli, Joe's Crab Shack, and Whataburger, plus toys, and even books.

This year Nicholas also participated in the summer reading program at Half Price Books. There program is especially cool. Each week the child turns in their reading log for a $3.00 gift card to use in the store. This is super cool since the books are already at half price and there are so many great books and DVDs to choose from. Nicholas used his most recent gift card to buy a bug kit called Backyard Bugs. He was excited to see that there was a book and some plastic bugs. But when he picked up the book there were more bugs and goodies hidden underneath. The kit comes with an awesome set of 12 realistic looking bugs that Nicholas absolutely loves. Seriously, he has been taking them everywhere, even to bed! The cicada is definitely his favorite. The kit also has a wonderful book that talks about the bugs as well as a great colorful poster and set of stickers. Nicholas is very proud of this find because he LOVES bugs!



He put a giant butterfly sticker on my shirt and the rest he put on his shirt and...his legs? He likes to pretend to scare me so I have to say, "Oh, Nicholas! There are bugs crawling up your legs! Ahhhhhh!" Silly boy!
