Check It Out! The Great Summer Library Challenge for Kids
What Do We Do All Day and Bethany at No Twiddle Twaddle are taking with their Great Summer Library Challenge for Kids. They've come up with a bunch of fun, scavenger-hunt-style "challenges" to help kids get to know their library. I like that they emphasize exploration rather than quantity, as in the usual summer list. Much as we go to the library, I'm pretty sure N. doesn't know as much yet about how to explore the library as these challenges would teach him. I think these activities will help him think beyond the computer catalog when he wants to browse. The non-fiction challenges are especially smart. I'm looking forward to trying them out with N.!
