Hey, children’s book lovers!

December has arrived, and it’s the perfect time to celebrate the joys of winter and the December holidays with your young readers! Our December Reading Challenge is here, and we’ve prepared 10 fun and interactive mini-goals to make this holiday season extra special.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the goals we have in store for you:

Winter Wonderland Reads:  Choose a book that paints a picture of a snowy wonderland. After reading, have your child create a snowflake-themed craft and share it with us using #SOCWReadingChallenge

Christmas Cheer:  Pick a classic Christmas story to read together. Afterward, bake cookies, and decorate them in holiday shapes. Share your cookie creations with us!

Kwanzaa Celebration: Explore a book that highlights the principles and traditions of Kwanzaa. Have your child create a Kwanzaa-inspired artwork and tell us what they’ve learned.

Holiday Story Time: Organize a book exchange with friends or family. Each child can wrap a favorite holiday book and exchange it with another child.

Let’s make December a month filled with the magic of winter, holiday traditions, and the joy of reading. Happy Reading!📚

P.S. Don’t forget to share your favorite books with us in the comments below. We love hearing about what you’re reading and what you love about it! 

Share your progress with us on social media using the hashtag #SOCWReadingChallenge, and we’ll feature some of our favorites throughout the month. We can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Happy reading!
