If you haven’t had a chance to register for “Take a Bite Out of a Book” – the University Park Library Summer Reading Program, you can register online now! Just click here.

After all, prizes are at stake! (Forty hours of reading gets a T-shirt and bragging rights!)

All hours must be recorded by July 29 and prizes picked up by July 30. girl reading with stack of books - shutterstock_221592391

So sign up and head to the library to choose a book.

Need help? Consider this great tip from Imagination Soup:

You have 5 fingers. Wiggle those.

Open the book to the middle – any page.

Start reading. When you come to a word you don’t know, that’s okay. Hold up one finger for that word.

If you come to any other words you don’t know, hold up one finger for each word. Stop at the end of the page.

Now, you can explain that they will know if it’s a just right book because of how many fingers they’re holding up.

  • 0 fingers is an easy book.
  • 1 – 5 fingers is a just-right book.
  • More than 5 fingers is a challenge book.
