Welcome to week EIGHT of Read, Discuss, Do's Summer Challenge! This week is all about making a splash. We hope you'll read some books that feature a swimming pool and make a splash in the pool yourself (just not at the same time!). If heading to the pool or a water park doesn't work for you, use the tub instead! Or run outside in the sprinkler. We're flexible! You could also do a project inspired by one of the books you read. Look back at this post about Jabari Jumps for one idea. Have fun, and don't forget about the hashtag, #RDDSummerChallenge.
Jabari Jumps by Gaia Cornwall, a story about a young boy facing his fear of jumping off the diving board. This book may inspire your young readers to make the jump themselves!
1, 2, 3, Jump! by Lisl H. Detlefsen, illusrated by Madeline Valentine is another one about overcoming fear, this time about taking swim lessons.
The Pool by Stanley Francis, illustrated by Angel Swan is a simple and silly story that is sure to amuse. And the simple text is ideal for beginning readers.
