Young Readers

Young Readers

I absolutely love the program that Idaho Youth Ranch offers. Children get a “bookmark” on which they can list five books they have read, or had read to them. Once the list is complete, they bring it in and receive a free book and get to pick a toy outta the box behind the counter as well. I love encouraging reading in children. I feel like it is underappreciated, and I couldn’t imagine a life without books. I want to pass that love down to my kids, and although I don’t see any problem with that being hard to do (they LOVE books), I certainly appreciate every little thing that helps the encouragement. Kudos to this program, this Mama approves.

  1. Your children approve as well, it is so fun to listen to zander flip through the pages and make a story of his own up especially when he remembers key words (like potty) and is sure to include them in every sentence. I know I tell you this a lot but you need to know it. You are an awesome mom I could not find anyone better to raise our children.

  2. Good to know about the Idaho Youth Ranch program. I wish parents had as much passion for reading as they do for encouraging their children to play sports. Visiting from A to Z challenge (and from an Idaho location!).

  3. I absolutely agree. If a child learns to read and appreciate it, they learn so much more and excel in school and life. To coin an old phrase “READING IS FUNDAMENTAL”
