Reading fun for kids from Canada’s public libraries

Program materials en

Notebooks

The 2018 notebooks include:

  • a welcome message and an introduction to the TD Summer Reading Club
  • space for children to place their web access code sticker
  • a summer program calendar where children can record their special dates, including library activities and personal events (birthdays, trips, etc.)
  • identification pages for children to draw or paste a picture and describe themselves
  • plenty of space to record items read and collect stickers
  • space for a child to state his or her reading goal for the summer
  • space on the book log pages to record the number of minutes read, or to indicate whether a book was liked or not, or whatever a child chooses
  • playful reading prompts to encourage all sorts of reading fun, which children can check off as they are completed
  • additional pages to record books to read during the rest of the year
  • program certificate

Please note that there are two versions of the notebook – one for pre-readers (children ages 0-5) and their parents and caregivers, the other for children ages 6-12. The pre-reader version contains information for parents about reading readiness, and the text and reading prompts have been tweaked throughout, emphasizing the importance of reading together.

This item is bilingual. Both versions of the notebook are laid out in the “flipped” style, where English comprises one half and French the other.

Each child who joins the program receives an age-appropriate notebook at registration.

Web Access Sticker

This sticker contains a unique access code, which a child may enter at the TD Summer Reading Club website to create his or her online notebook, where virtual stickers and books read will be stored. This access code will act as a login, eliminating the need for the child to provide any personal information to set up an account. There will be space in the notebook for the child to stick their web access sticker on to.

Stickers

Children can visit their local library to receive a sticker. They will usually be asked a question by library staff about the book they’ve read.

If you are unable to bring your child to the library to collect stickers throughout the summer, you may request that your library give you the whole sticker sheet when you register, and you may give them out at home when your child finishes reading a book or other reading materials.
