Last month Christopher’s school had a Scholastic Book Fair. He loves buying books, but he’s not in love with actually reading them. So in an effort to motivate him to read more, I decided to bribe him a little. I told him that for every book he finished before the book fair, he could buy one book. The duration was about 3 weeks, I think.
I was a little worried because he could have conceivably finished 10-15 books during that time. Luckily, and unluckily I guess, he only finished 3 books during that time.
A Tale of Two Kitties (Dog Man #3) by Dav Pilkey
A Scare of a Dare (Diary of a Minecraft Zombie #1) by Zack Zombie
Rise of the Balloon Goons (The Notebook of Doom #1) by Troy Cummings
Sadly, neither of the new series stuck.
So at the book fair I gave him money to buy these 3 books. He also spent a lot of his own money to buy books and other items at the fair, e.g. posters, a Pokemon writing kit.
