"Dig Into Reading" Ideas

Truth: When you're a childen's librarian, summer is always on your mind. Alas, not the many hours you'll be logging at the beach, but the dread of summer reading program approaching. I've already started writing Flannel Friday posts to fit the "Dig Into Reading" collaborative summer reading program theme and I thought I would link them into one place for easy sharing. To make it easier on myself, I linked upcoming posts so if you try to go to one marked with an upcoming date, you will be disappointed! The Flannel Friday crew will be having a SRP Extravaganza roundup sometime in March, so watch for that (exact date TBD).

  1. This is really unrelated, but I would love if you posted sometime about how you create your images. I know (think?) you can do it with just the basic Paint program, but I wouldn't know where to start!

  2. Amy--Here's one way:

  3. Love this. I am using the whole gnome theme in my summer reading program too. I will put a small gnome in some of the books around. If someone finds him, they get a chance to win the larger gnome. I want to add a picture of them onto our wall and give the finder a golden coin.
