RRISD Summer Reading Program: Beach Blanket BINGO!

Read books, fill out form, win prizes! It’s that simple! The library will be sending home Beach Blanket BINGO forms for students to fill out over the summer. Instead of the usual reading log, we have a Bingo game with reading challenges!

Students can turn in their forms the first week of school to win a prize:

  • Complete 5 spaces in a row (across down, or diagonal) = Level 1 Prize (book mark)
  • Complete every space in both diagonal rows (to make an “X”) = Level 2 Prize (pencil)
  • Complete every space around the perimeter (hollow square) = Level 3 Prize (treasure chest)
  • Complete EVERY square for a Blackout for Books = Level 4 Prize (a book)
    • Level 4 Blackout for Books Prizes are as supplies last.
    • Turn your completed BLACKOUT challenge in on the first day of school to be guaranteed a book!

If you have misplaced your form, click below to download a copy of the form for the grade you will be entering.

Biography

I grew up in Havertown, Pennsylvania, where I wrote and illustrated my first book in the third grade. SUPER COW! was a smash hit both with critics (my teacher) and collectors (my parents).

When I was twelve years old, my family moved to Florida. My parents tried to get me and my two brothers excited about our move by buying us season passes to Disney World. I loved watching the animators at work on the Backstage Tour, and I decided I wanted to work for Disney when I grew up.

I attended the Rhode Island School of Design, but soon found myself drawn back towards illustration instead of animation. After graduation and a slew of ill-fated careers (including a portrait artist on a Carnival Cruise ship and a conductor of illegal tours through the Vatican Museums), I began working as a book designer with HarperCollins Children’s Books in New York.

I now live in Pennsylvania with my husband, young son, and surly cat.
