A Note from Mrs. Kese...

Shower Your Shelf with Books:

An April Reading Challenge for Kids  

  • Celebrate National Siblings Day on April 10 by reading a book about siblings. Share the story with your own sibling if you have one!  
  • Find a children’s poetry collection, and read the poem you find there.  
  • Laugh your way through a book of jokes. Memorize one of the jokes and tell it to a friend.  
  • Think of a skill or hobby you’d like to learn or get better at. Find a nonfiction book with information or how-tos.  
  • Read a book in a voice that sounds like your oldest or youngest relative.  
  • Check out a book with penguins to read on World Penguin Day, April 25. 
  • Read a book aloud to a plant you want to see grow.  
  • Think of your favorite movies. Find out if any of them were books first and, if so, read the book! (Ask an adult for help with your research if needed.)  
  • Find your favorite reading spot in your home. If it’s possible, design a sign to make it yours.
