It seems like Term 4 is going really fast, so now is a good time to think about how you are going to get books to read over the summer holidays. As well as borrowing books from our library, we have the Duffy book offer that came out last week- buy 3 books for $10. Add 'books' to your Christmas wishlist if you make one, or ask for book vouchers. When I was at school ( a really long time ago!) my Great-Grandmother gave me a Whitcoulls book voucher every birthday and Christmas and I used to spend hours choosing which book to buy. She loved reading and was still getting library books when she was 98!
You could think about joining Hutt Libraries if you don't already have a card, it's free and if you have a tablet or ereader you can download ebooks to read even if you are on holiday. There are heaps of new children's ebooks now and you can reserve them like other books if they are out.
If you have seen my desk lately you might have seen me working on The Great Dyer Street School Summer Reading Challenge. It has a Kiwiana theme, and you will all take one home to do over the holidays, and all finished entries go into the draw to win some book prizes.
