The Little Book Adventure: Project #9- Discover New Places to Read

This challenge is being sponsored by Rose and Lily in conjunction with Tidy Books

THE CHALLENGE: Discover New Places to Read

As part of this challenge we are asking you to:

  • Forgo the couch and the bed this month, and find some new and interesting places to read with your children.
  • You do not need to set up a permanent reading space or nook. This project is simply encouraging you to give your child/ren a different reading experience by thinking outside the square to find a temporary space to read.
  • I’m sure your kids will have some wonderful suggestions.


Here are just a few ideas to get you started……..


You have until November 30, 2012 to complete this challenge. Once you have completed the challenge, please send us a photo of your unique place to read (feel free to send in more than one photo)

  1. What an awesome challenge, Mr 7 & and me do read every where even on lilo’s in the pool, the trampoline, waiting at the doctors surgery etc…
    I can’t partake because I’m actually recouping and can’t move around much but will share :)

    • Thanks Nathalie. Reading on the lilo in the pool sounds so dreamy. Maybe Cam and I could read in our temporary blow-up pool.

  9. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running
    off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.

  10. Pretty! This was an incredibly wonderful post. Thanks for supplying this info.
