    These kinds of activities also spark interest if you want to have an H. and M. Reading Club. If they read every book in the series, and pass the A.R. test, they get a little stuffed reading monkey pal. (50 cents at scholastic warehouse sale) It's always a pleasant surprise to see how many are able to read all of those books!
