I am so excited to share with you a fun Summer Reading Program for your kids. It's called Readathon 2012 brought to you by MeMeTales partnered with PBSKids. We learnt about Memetales over a year ago and have really enjoyed reading books on their website with Putti. I especially loved it for books from Indian publishers which would have otherwise been inaccessible to us as we would have to wait for our visit to India to buy them. Also, one of Putti's artwork was published in their first edition of the Collective Creativity Books- Being Thankful!
Readathon will help your kids combat the proverbial "Summer Slide" by keeping them reading plus you will also be doing some good deed. For every child that registers for Readathon 2012 MeMeTales is donating a meal to send a hungry child to school via FoodForEducation.org #ReadForGood
You can read more on how to participate here. Putti has already enjoyed many of the books currently available and is looking forward to the many more that will be provided as part of Readathon 2012 throughout the summer. Off course I will be reading it to her, as she is still a beginning reader and is not yet able to read them all by herself.
Also, myself and a whole host of other lovely kids bloggers are joining forces and will feature a book every week for six weeks starting June 18th (when the program starts) and along with activities to go with them. Wont you join us and read along? MeMeTales along with PBSKids will make books available for your children to "borrow" via the MeMeTales website and apps. Pop on over toMeMeTales and register your child(ren) and #ReadForGood. The app can be downloaded to your iPad, iPod, iPhone or Android device.
Every week has a different theme for books:
- Week 1 – Animal Fun
- Week 2 – Friendship
- Week 3 – Character Development
- Week 4 – Imagination
- Week 5 – The Green earth
- Week 6 – Global Cultures
Your Child not only gets to participate and read wonderful books but at the end of each week, he earns a certificate of achievement to display proudly. The 2012 Readathon starts June 18th ,so go sign up and get ready for the summer reading fun!
Disclaimer: I have partnered with Memetales to promote this program via publishing activities and ideas around books within the chosen theme. In exchange my family receives books we read.
