Read with Me Series - Intro.png

Read with Me! A series about reading popular books
while doing simple language building activities!

One summer, my daughter and I read 24 books to earn a free book at our local library! 


We read some really great books and did some really fun activities!  Check out your favorite book or find a new one!
