We are so excited to announce this newest opportunity for our summer reading participants! One of the goals of the Latino Children’s Summer Reading Program is to take advantage of technology and use it to boost literacy skills among our youth. Our Young Adult Challenge does exactly that as it combines technology with Latino literature.
Kids ages 12 to 18 are still challenged to read 8 books this summer, BUT we want them to also present a video book report on a piece of Latino (children’s) literature that they’ve read. This book may be one of the 8 books they’ve read for the program, and may or may not be found on our reading list for young adults.
The families of participants in this age range who submit a list of the 8 books they’ve read over the summer, as well as a video book report about a piece of Latino (children’s) lit that they’ve read, will be entered to win one of 10 Chromebooks and 10 Nexus 7 tablets donated by our sponsor, Google. The video book report will be archived in the L4LL YouTube channel.
