I’m celebrating kids caught in the act of reading again this summer. As always, I will send you a children’s book for every photo you send me of your child caught reading. I hope this sparks a love of reading for kids!

Note: I think GenZ Read Together is out of business!
My son and I started reading very short non-fiction stories from GenZ Read Together, a website that makes reading together an entertaining educational experience. We get a wide assortment of non-fiction stories which include:
- vocabulary building exercises
- a hangman reveal-the-hidden-picture puzzle
- an educational video
As part of their Summer Reading program, some of my favorite educational, arts, and children’s book bloggers are hosting a Blog Tour where we come up with activities you can do at home with your kids for one of GenZ’s non-fiction stories.
We are also each hosting a giveaway so YOU can win 20 stories from GenZ Read Together. Finally, if you don’t win but want to try it out, GenZ is offering a special discount to my readers:
