Our local library has the "Catch the Reading Bug" program, too. They have storytime for the younger kids but nothing for the older kids.

My son is finishing up the "The Series of Unfortunate Events" books. He's in the middle of the second to last book and then he can watch the movie. He read the other books in the series during the second half of the school year and was able to take tests on them to earn his A.R. points. If he decided to try out for his school's safety patrol team next year, he has to read one book (his grade level or above) and be able to take a test on it the day school starts.

Barbszy, I would love to see a good reading list for older kids, too. If you find one, please share it with us!!
