Summer has officially started in my house. That means we get to sleep in, go to the pool and start reading. Every year, our local library hosts a summer reading program, and the kids earn rewards for reading.This year, they can earn an ice cream cone, comic book, admission to the local ice skating rink and bowling.

While my daughter eagerly embraces the challenge, my son is not so enthusiastic. He does not enjoy opening a book and discovering its treasures.

I found this list of alternative reading options for him at http://childhood101.com/2015/10/10-things-to-read-with-kids/

*Magazines
*Closed captioning
*Menus
*Cereal boxes
*Comics
*Seed packets
*Billboards

What else would you recommend?
