Create Your Own Scavenger Hunt

Make a list of topics you'd like your child to explore, and write them down on separate index cards. For example, your cards might say: friendship, gardening, famous artists, pet care, and money management. Then, go to the library with your child and tell her that you want her to find a book appropriate to her reading level that matches each of the topics you give her. So you might begin with finding a book about friendship. Once she finds that, give her the next index card, and so on. The exercise will reinforce her library skills and introduce her to a whole new set of books she might want to read.
