Are you ready???
Tomorrow is NATIONAL SUMMER LEARNING DAY!
What do you plan to learn?
Perhaps some words in a new language:
Spanish for Beginners by Helen Davies
This book not only has plenty of words and pictures but an online website to help you with pronunciation. ¡hurra! (Hooray!)
Or maybe off-the-wall baseball trivia:
Odd Ball by Timothy Tocher
This comic book provides funny, surprising, and truly unbelievable facts on America’s favorite summer sport.
Or how to draw monsters:
Draw 50 Monsters, Creeps, Superheroes, Demons, Dragons, Nerds, Dirts, Ghouls, Giants, Vampires by Lee Ames
Master monster drawing and amaze your family and friends with your spooky artwork!
Or how to make healthy snacks:
Holy Guacamole! by Nick Fauchild
Pass up the sugary snacks for yummy treats you can whip up yourself.
Or how to write a poem:
How to Write Poetry by Paul B. Janeczko
Find lots of tips and techniques that will inspire you to put pen to paper (and learn about alliteration like in this sentence.)
Or how to write a story:
Writing Magic by Gail Carson Levine
From beginning to end, this book will help you shape a super story—perhaps even a monster story that you can illustrate!
Whatever you’d like to learn tomorrow—or throughout the summer, remember a good starting place is your local library or bookstore or online sites like For Kids here on my website or at the American Library Associations Great Websites for Kids.
I’d love to hear about some of the cool stuff you’re learning!
