Dog Stories to Win:
Summer Reading Fun for Kids

Need a Book Talk?

School is out and Summer is unofficially here. Parents often seek out active daily plans for their children, to assure they burn off all that pent up energy from the school year, while aiding in a good night's sleep. But what about their brains? Children need to maintain their reading levels over the summer in order to make additional progress in the fall when returning to classes. This is why regular Summer reading is so important. Improving reading skills takes practice.


The two books in the giveaway are Sheep, by Valerie Hobbs, and Chewy and Chica by Ellen Miles. The latter is part of The Puppy Place series. If you don't want to take your chances on the giveaway, you can click the links to take you straight to their pages at Amazon. HINT: They're cheap!


Practice is not fun when the books are no fun. Choose topics that are appealing, and even compelling for your child to read. If you have a dog-loving kid, he or she may likely enjoy a dog story. Two books each will be won by 3 winners in this giveaway which is designed for kids just breaking into chapter books. Enjoy!



The books in this giveaway were acquired by me at my own expense, as a giveaway for my readers' kids. Having seen my own 3 kids grow up into avid readers and get great educations, I know the importance of this skill to their future. Happy tales!
