How many times have you signed up for summer reading programs or saw a notice about one and thought it looked like fun for your children only to forget about it later or even forgot that you signed up for it?  I know that lists help me keep on track with the deadlines for the programs as well as the ones that we have signed up for.  So this year instead sharing of a long list of summer reading programs available to get and keep your kids motivated to read this summer I’ve created a printable summer reading program list.  You can check off the ones that you have signed up for or even add to it if you find more.

Summer is right around the corner and I know I’m trying hard to go ahead and plan ahead and to be a boredom buster.  Of course I’ve got camps and VBS planned but what about when they are home.

 Official story . . . 

“Sleeping Beauty” tells the wondrous tale of a princess cursed by an evil fairy, protected by three loving fairies and, ultimately, saved by “true love’s kiss.” Featuring the voice talents of renowned opera singer Mary Costa as Sleeping Beauty and Disney stalwart Eleanor Audley as the evil fairy, Maleficent, the film’s vibrant visuals were created by a team that included Milt Kahl and Ollie Johnston, two of Disney’s legendary Nine Old Men and an Academy Award®-nominated score, 1959, adapted from the incandescent music of Peter Tchaikovsky. “Sleeping Beauty” is the sixteenth animated feature in the Disney animated features canon and was the last animated feature produced by Walt Disney to be based upon a fairy tale. It is the tenth film released as part of Disney’s prestigious Blu-ray Diamond Collection.
