  • Space to record items read or listened to, collect stickers, record the number of minutes read, or draw pictures
  • Fun challenges
  • A summer recap page
  • A program certificate
  • A colouring page

School-age notebook

The bilingual school-age notebook is designed for kids aged 6–12. It includes the following:

  • Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) activities
  • Space to record an individual summer reading goal, time spent reading, and items read or listened to
  • A summer challenge checklist
  • A comic-captioning activity
  • A program certificate
  • A board game

Web Access Sticker

The web access code is printed on a sticker that children can stick onto the inside cover of their notebook. Kids enter their web access code on the TD Summer Reading Club website (live as of June 15, 2021). Each sticker contains a unique code that lets kids and families create an online notebook, read ebooks and track their reading.

Stickers

Kids can visit their local library to receive stickers as incentives for reading. Depending on how your library runs the program, staff may ask your child a question about the book they’ve read and hand out one sticker per book, or, they may give you the whole sticker sheet upon registration. If you’re going to be busy over the summer, you may want to ask for the whole sticker sheet.
