Caught in the Act … of READING!

Thank you to everyone who sent me a photo of their kids caught reading!! I can’t tell you how happy it makes me that your kids are reading and I’m thrilled that they will be excited to receive a book! I tried to match up ages based on what you sent me and I’m also grateful that you are helping me clean out my office!

I’ll be posting these wonderful photos of kids reading on a weekly basis. If anyone wants to send me a photo, I will send you a book in return. Please email pragmaticmomblog (at) gmail (dot) com. Sorry, but I am only able to mail books to the U.S. and APO addresses due to the high cost of shipping.

Thank you to Ali for sending me her three kids reading so nicely together at bedtime!

Thank you to Lynn, The Gift Huntress, for her photo of another use for a trampoline! This reading moment was brought to you by March Madness, a reading competition at our elementary school.

    Wonderful idea! I’m going to send a picture of my son, Jack.
    Great work, Mia:)

    Great pictures! I still have to get a good one. I am always complaining my kids want to take their books to the park (I want them to run around instead) so I will try and remember to take one there. Doesn’t really count but I sent you one today on Instagram of the Family Circus kids reading 🙂

    Thank you so much for the awesome book! I will email you a picture of the girls reading. I took it out of the package and they immediately stole it from me.

    It was so exciting to open the mailbox and find a new book for Liam to get caught reading! Thank you!

  6. What a great idea, I love seeing all these kids absorbed in reading!
