The Mom Squad’s Family Reading Challenge

dreamstime_7133086We have been so blessed with the addition of Roberta Edmisten, who writes our bi-monthly book review column!  Her experience as a teacher and love of books come through in each review, and she gives us parents awesome tips to enhance our reading experience.

Roberta had the idea to hold a Family Reading Contest to see how High Country Families are using her tips.  I thought it was a great idea, and here we are!  Here’s how it will work:

  • Between now and February 28, choose a book from any of the  Roberta’s Book Nook columns to read with your family.
  • Use some of the tips Roberta gives for pre/during/post reading your chosen book.
  • On the Contest Post at the end of February, you’ll leave a comment explaining what you did.  You can also send in pictures of activities or artwork, and I’ll include them in the post. (email any pictures to
  • In early March, we’ll award the prize by random drawing from the entries!

For the prize, we will offer a “Family Reading Package,” including books and other goodies.

So what do you think?  Are you in?.
