Time to dive into chapter books! Whether an easy reader version or a thick tome, whether read alone or listened to, find at least one chapter book that looks interesting.
As a bonus challenge this month, our topic is local/regional. This can mean either the book was set near you or written by an author from your area – or both!
Some series of chapter books that are set in different locations that might get you started:
- Flat Stanley Worldwide Adventures by Jeff Brown
- Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osbourne
- Real Kids! Real Places! by Carol Marsh
This is a really fun month to get out and explore around your area as your extension activity. Visit a state park, landmark, museum, or similar spot and learn a little local lore or history!
Do be sure to decide ahead of time what you consider “local,” which will likely depend on where you live. If you’re in a big city, there might be a lot of reading options; those in rural settings might need to expand their zone to include their state/province or similar area.
