Book Adventure for Children

I am a firm believer in children reading books.  I loved books as a child so I always had a book.  But reading is a challenge for some and they need extra encouragement and nurturing in this area.  There have been many studies done and research on how being a reader makes for a better student, not just till high school graduation, but for life.  

Reading opens up a world that allows a person unlimited access to knowledge.  Even if a person can not afford college, they can learn about the world and cosmos through books.  A reader can easily improve their skills and  capabilities with a free library card.  I give books to any children on my holiday list to promote their creativity, logic skills, comprehension, and even their sense of curiosity.  Yep, I'm a regular reading cheer leader.

When I found Book Adventure by Sylvan Learning, I just had to spread the word.  Book Adventure ( is a free, online reading program for children in grades K-8 with the goal to help kids learn to love reading through interactive tools, games and motivational rewards.

In the Kid's Zone there is
- a book finder by grade level or an area of interest like mystery
- encouragement awards for reading
- online and printable games and
- resources to help children read better
- collect reading points and get prizes

Parent's Place allows the parents to see how their child is doing and be a part of their adventure and resources to keep your child motivated. 

The Teacher's Lounge contains many free tools to assist in the classroom - how great is that!
 - Find a book: Search for books or create a booklist for your students.
 - Prize Library: Create a prize for your classroom or approve prizes your students have earned.
 - My Classroom: Keep track of all the students in your classrooms, create contests and teams, develop quizzes and reading reminders for students and more!
 - Reports: View reading reports and create letters you can send to your parents to highlight a student’s reading progress.
 - Quizzes: Find and preview a quiz or view samples of reading quizzes.

I hope this is a helpful resource to any parents or teachers out there.  Reading is one of the educational fundamentals that we can't let slip for the sake our children's futures.

Since I love including videos - here is a short clip on tips for encouraging reading.
