The goal is to read: 24 books during this time period if you’re in 1st grade, 12 books during this time period if you’re in 2ndgrade, and 6 books during this time period if you’re in 3rdgrade, then write or dictate a book review for each book. Of these books, at least half should be from the library’s booklists. While you may choose books from any of the three lists, you should be choosing books written at your reading level. Please be sure to include your full name and phone number on every review you submit. Reviews may be turned in one at a time or all at once. Every review will be read by the children's librarian.

    Receive an assortment of small incentive prizes, as well as a drawing entry for a special completion prize. Register and pick-up your reading list at the Children’s Service Desk or online. If you have questions, call Ellen, the school-age librarian, at 920-832-6020 or email ejepson@apl.org.
