It Could Be Worse: A Girlfriend's Guide for Runners Who Detest Running

by Beth Probst


Because we know first hand how these programs build reading skills, language and imaginations, we're introducing a Summer Reading Program tailored to the kids in your life, whether they're here for a weekend or all summer. Kid's books aren't just for kids - the door to the world of books is open to everybody!

Here's how it works:

The program will run from July 1st through August 15th (six weeks). Children of all ages are welcome to participate.

The child will color in a book on the reading record sheet for every 15 minutes that they read. Reading record sheets may be picked up at Redbery or we would be happy to mail or email them. OR click on this link to register electronically:

When all of the books on the sheet are colored in or the deadline passes, please drop the page/pages off at Redbery, or email a picture of the completed pages to or mail them to us at PO Box 460 Cable, WI 54821.

Please make sure we receive the reading record sheet by August 22nd.

Children who complete the program (10.5 total hours of reading) will receive a free book. Additionally, there will be a drawing for other prizes, from the child's reading page that is entered. Sheets do not need to be completely filled to be eligible for the drawing, just send us what they've finished.

That's it! To recap: Obtain reading record sheet, color the books on the sheet for every 15 minutes read, return sheet to Redbery via email, mail or dropping them by, to be eligible for a free book and other prizes. Deadline for entries is August 22nd.

Featured Book

This joyful picture book celebrates middle children and sibling love.

When you’re in the middle . . . you’re not the oldest, and you’re not the youngest. You are right in between. There’s someone bigger who helps you and someone smaller who needs you. From the middle, you can see both sides.
