Summer Challenge Week SIX: Nighttime!


Welcome to week five of the Read, Discuss, Do Summer Challenge! So far we've had a lot of fun with ice cream, playing in the dirt, setting sail, red, white & blue, and fireworks! If you've missed out on any of those challenges, feel free to catch up any time. And if you're new, we hope you'll jump in!

This week's theme is NIGHTTIME! We hope this challenge leads to some fun books and discussions about night. We suggest having some fun with flashlights, playing hide-and-go-seek in the dark, or trying a night sky art project. Whatever you do, you have fun! Remember to use #RDDSummerChallenge if you share in the fun on Instagram and Twitter.
