Happy National Reading Month!
And, as a fun little side note, happy 2nd birthday to Bookroo! We feel it’s appropriate that Bookroo started up two years ago, during National Reading Month.
To celebrate, we have a Facebook event going all month long called “Celebrating National Reading Month.” The theme? Hidden Gems! This month-long event has weekly sub-themes with ideas for many fun activities, giveaways, and–you’ve got it–Prizes!!
So here’s the rundown of what’s happened so far (and maybe a few sneak peaks!), because we think it’s pretty fun. There are ways to enter every day, gaining entries for both the weekly giveaways and the final grand prize!
Kickoff: What’s more fun to start off any reading celebration than a READ-A-THON! That’s exactly what we did. Such a fun activity to help families read together and earn prizes together! Like our Facebook page to get updates about future read-a-thons.
Week 1: Pirates
Arghh mateys! We had a blast finding hidden gems with you! Let’s look back at all the fun adventures we had:
- Went on two treasure hunts
- Read pirate books
- Took a quiz on one of the MOST classic books featuring pirates (what’s your score?!)
- Shared Pirate craft, party, and activity ideas
- Hosted a caption contest
- Chose 3 winners won 1-month Bookroo subscriptions
Week 2: Friendship
Deep and lasting relationships are the hidden gems that make life worth living. We’re currently celebrating Friendship week, and so far, we’ve:
- Shared Ideas to throw a fun “Friends are Gems” party to celebrate those you love most
- Read friendship books
- Took a quiz on a classic childhood book about friendship
- …And much more to come!
We’ve got two fun weeks left of hidden gems for you. What’s in store, you might ask? Well. We won’t let you in on too many details, you’ll have to join the event and follow along! :)
But we will tell you about the amazing GRAND PRIZE! With a value of over $380, one winner will receive a fairytale costume (your choice of Dragon, Knight, or Unicorn Princess) from Love Lane, a play canopy from Blue House Joys, and a 6-month Bookroo subscription! To win, make sure you’re “Going” to the FB event and participating as much as you can to get as many entries as possible! Best of luck!
