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.
