Family Read Aloud Challenge
Runs January 1 through December 31
How it Works:
- Sign up on Beanstack: manitowoclibrary.beanstack.org (one registration per family!)
- Read six books at least 80 pages long, and pick a free book!
- For ages 4-17 — as long as someone is reading out loud and someone is listening, it counts!
- Earn up to three books per year
Tips & Tricks:
- Read books everyone will enjoy or take turns choosing
- Read a parent’s childhood favorite
- Re-read a child’s favorite
- Extend your reading: trying a recipe mentioned in a book or draw a picture of a character
- If possible, take turns reading out loud
- If a book isn’t working for your family, move on to something new
- Share a review of one of your favorites and check other reviews in Beanstack
- Check out the library read-a-like book lists for suggestions
- Most importantly, enjoy reading together as a family!
