Reading Families Rock!

Mom is the biggest winner!

My friend Marcia and her kids made a bet that whomever finished forty book first, many off of a school’s reading list, would get $300......

So, they have been reading for about a year, and of course Marcia was determined that she would beat her kids. I tried to convince her that maybe she should let one of her kids win, but Marcia was determined to win this competition.

Marcia talked about the joy of talking about literature over the course of the year with her children; however, Marcia explained that the reading competition seem to drag on so she offered her kids a deal with each taking $100 dollars, and she would be named the winner. The kids would not take the deal so in her own words: “ I had to beat them outright!” (Really Mom!)

Just look at the look on their faces when they received this text from their Mom: “The reading competition is over and guess who won MOM."


Now, I am not sure about you, but I think that this is an awesome way to get kids to read.....

Marcia shared that this competition created good, clean fun in her family, and she and her kids read forty books that they may or may not have read without the competition!

Reading Families Rock...
