Summer Reading Under the Stars with Scholastic & EVEREADY

Last month, I told you about my expectations for summer reading for my kids. This month we took our summer reading outdoors to read under the stars. Scholastic provided the books and information about the stars and EVEREADY® provided the flashlights so we could read outside and enjoy the night sky while reading.

My kids and I took a blanket, flashlights from EVEREADY®, a book and the Scholastic constellation guide and headed outside.

It was still a little light out, so at first we read. It was interesting to look up and see how the stars started to come out as the sky got darker and darker. We discussed what our books were about and what it would be like to live in the book they are reading. (That was very interesting.)

Nicky and Megan were thankful for the EVEREADY® flashlights when it got dark. As more stars came out, they wondered what else was out there in the universe. Were there other planets somewhere with kids who were reading books and looking up at the night sky like us?

And it was like a light bulb (more like a flashlight) went off in his head. He realized reading can take him to many places. Hmmmm…I think I’ve heard that before (from me.)

As kids log their minutes online, they will unlock new constellations. Then go out and find those constellations in the night sky.
