100 books-a-month challenge ~ december so far and a good deed

We are doing great this month with the 100-books-a-month challenge, with a total of 46 books read so far! If you are taking part of the challenge, leave a comment, I would love to come and visit other blogs that are participating! (I was reminded by Leslie who hosts the challenge that she has a list of participants on her blog home-grown love..oops, I forgot!)

I had signed up for the Scholastic book clubs at the beginning of this school year, and saw their ClassroomsCare campaign. I contacted Scholastic and asked them if we could participate as homeschoolers too. They answered YES and reminded me that we had to read 100 books by January 22, 2010, and that once we accomplished that goal, we were to notify them and 100 books would be donated on our behalf to children that need them. We were also sent a chart to keep track of the books we read, by colouring in stars. The kids and I reached our goal at the end of November and they sent us this certificate! My kids are very happy to have been able to participate and help others.


  1. Now that's a great reward for reading books---more for others!! I will have to do this too! May I share the info on my blog? I can link to you...

    Also, there is a list of participating families on my side bar under the challenge logo.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yes of course Leslie! Check to make sure that the USA Scholastic is doing the same campaign first..We're in Canada.
    I forgot about your list..I will go there now, thanks!

  3. Hi Alex! 100 books in a month ~ Awesome! I admire you so much for homeschooling your children. I often wish that I had done that too because mine asked and asked for it, but I didn't think that I would have that kind of energy to sustain it. What lovely memories you're building for them.


I ♥ comments! Thank you for stopping by.
