We understand how frustrating this can be–for the child, and for the parents. No one wants to feel like they aren’t going to be able to keep up. We certainly don’t want that. We want every child who joins the TD Summer Reading Club to have access to books or materials that will entertain, educate, and keep them enthusiastic about reading throughout the summer.
The first amazing resource that we want to highlight is the TD Summer Reading Club website and materials. Each child who registers for the program at our library will receive a fun reading bag full of items to get them started. It will include a reading booklet, a fantastic bookmark, activity pages, reading challenges, and much more. All of the branded materials provided by the TD Summer Reading Club are available for children of all ages, contain both French and English versions, and have wonderful age-related activities.
The website has all of this available in a variety of languages, for all ages and interests, and we encourage everyone to visit it often once the program begins.
But if your child has reading issues, like the ones mentioned above, they also have special downloadable accessible booklets to replace the ones we include in the bags. There are booklets in Braille, audioversions, and booklets that are specially designed for those readers who have print issues. Ask us to print one for you, or show you how you can access them from home!
We have lots of other great accessible resources available this summer, too. Please watch for more posts, or ask us how we can help your child participate in a format that works best for them. We want EVERYONE to love summer reading as much as we do!
