#SRP
blurb
SleepyDragon
Moonlight Ocean | Elizabeth Golding
post image

So it looks like my little guy might not lose his finger tip after all. The tip was pink, so blood is getting there, and if it doesn't lose color, he gets to keep it forever. We have to keep his hand bandaged like this until the stiches come out next week. In the meantime, #SRP has officially started. He and sis were "reading" these Moonlight books earlier, and I read them to them later on. They were passed down from big brother and a hit!

SleepyDragon Moonlight Ocean is the one pictured. Sis was reading Moonlight Animals, which she called "the owl book." These books are fantastic. My sister (a teacher) bought them for my oldest years ago, and he loved them as well. Each page is a picture, and you use a paper flashlight to find the hidden wildlife. It's a great concept and an awesome introduction to nonfiction science books. Probably best around 1st grade level. 5mo
Texreader I sure hope little guy recovers 100 percent! 5mo
SleepyDragon @Texreader Thank you. The odds have greatly improved in the last two days, so I'm hopeful he will. 5mo

(Tagged the library in the town where I wish I was spending the summer.)

The kids and I are all registered to participate in the summer reading program! #SRP #library

My oldest will be tracking his reading on his own using Beanstack. We'll see how it goes. Lol I'm using Beanstack to track my own reading and the 3 yr old twins' story time. Fun times ahead!

Moony Can I only use the app when I have a library card in the states? 🤔 5mo
SleepyDragon @Moony I don't know if it's a states only thing, but I think you might have to have an account with a participating library, though entering your library card number was optional. I'm not sure, honestly. I was able to just select a library and a aet up an account. 5mo

Reading Tracker | Amy Collins
post image

Our library is using a new tracking app for patrons to register for the #SRP, and it looks kind of cool. It gives basic stats, much like Bookly, but no cute info graphic generator. Also you can track multiple readers, which could be useful with my emerging readers. Anyone else use Beanstack? I'm trying it out this summer and see if it would be worthwhile to use year round. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.beanstack (also for 🍎)

So Many Feet | Nichole Mara

Great book to pair with the #SRP program today, which was meeting animals with Saving Wildlife International. Pictured is a Capuchin Monkey that was an organ grinder monkey for tourists in San Francisco. Whoever used her for that pulled all her teeth so that she wouldn't bite people she collected money from. 😔
The book is awesome and the twins acted out how animals use their feet on each page. Probably gonna buy it for our home library.

Nightwoods: A Novel | Charles Frazier

My new golden colored #SRP cup. My husband dropped and broke my blue one a while back, and I had to wait till now to replace it. Loving Nightwoods, btw, though TPTB have been keeping me from it the last few days, since my husband's birthday often falls on Father's Day weekend. #MtTBRchallenge #Overdrive

Adorable retelling of the movie. My 10 yr old actually purchased this picture book for his collection. The illustrations are so cute, and it mostly keeps to the movie, only leaving out parts that may upset or not be appropriate for the toddler set. Also, the text does not shy away from challenging vocabulary for beginning readers. (Always a +!)⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐💜😁

The Medusa Plot | Gordon Korman

All signed up for the local #SRP program: 1 kid, 2 toddlers, and 1 adult. The library is under new management this year, so it was a little confusing signing up this morning, but I'm excited that district has a separate reward system for the small kids this year. Last year, my oldest kept getting 3 prizes because they weren't age appropriate for the tots. Tagged is the 10 yr old's current read. Pictured is the one we read together today.

Some of the stories were thought provoking, but just as many did not hold my interest.
