I signed up three more kids for SRC yesterday. I am in the habit of asking them now if they have read any books so far this summer, to get them started with a base number for stats and to show them how the tokens and prizes work here at Rideau Branch.
Yesterday, responses included:
(from a parent) "No, you've all been playing video games all summer! You haven't read anything! That's why I brought you here!"
(from a 7 year old) "No, not really, but I'm going to start now!" (waves her SRC poster in the air).
