Mish--- What ages are your children? I think it is great that you are reading to your youngest. One of the ways to get kids to read is to read to them and let them see you reading too. I am finding that many of the young parents in my area are so busy that they are not reading themselves and then wonder why their children don't like to read.
Tami--Our Summer Reading program includes children up to Sixth grade. I wish we had the staff to provide a program for the tween / teen kids, but it just isn't possible to fit anything in the summer (and stay sane) I have tried to do some extra programs for that age group in the fall and winter. Tami, my middle school English teacher has sent me the list for the middle school AR books. We mark all of the books on list that our library owns so it is easier for the kids can find something to read for AR. It is a pretty big list and has some good books on it. I might be able to scan it into the computer and e-mail it to you.
