Turns out they have a great summer reading program for both age groups. For the babes, we do 16 "reading ready" activities such as sing a song, clap to a rhyme, and talk about what we're looking at. The reward is a new board book. In two days we're already done! For the 2-5 age group, it's reading time. 20 minutes per chunk. 45 chunks. Ummm.... correct me if I'm wrong, but that's 15 hours of reading. Man, things get tough when you're not a baby! We're already on hour 3 though, so it shouldn't be a problem.
One thing the director was saying was kids need to be read about 1000 books from birth to when they start kindergarden to be ready for school. I did a little math, and Robin should be ready by age six months.
