PARENTING

WHAT CAN FAMILIES DO TO KEEP CHILDREN READING DURING THE SUMMER?

Combine activities with books

Summer leaves lots of time for kids to enjoy fun activities, such as going to the park, seeing a movie, or going to the beach.  Why not also encourage them to read a book about the activity?  If you're going to a baseball game, suggest that your child read a book about a favorite player beforehand.  In the car or over a hot dog, you'll have lots of time to talk about the book and the game.

Visit the library

If your child doesn't have a library card, summer is a great time to sign up for one.  In addition to a wide selection of books to borrow, many libraries have fun, child-friendly summer reading programs.

Have plenty of reading material around

Storybooks aren't the only thing that kids can read for fun.  Be sure to have newspapers, magazines, and informational material on hand that might spark the interest of a young reader.

NUTRITION CORNER

Peanut Butter, Strawberry and Banana Quesadillas

 
PBJ-banana-quesadillasIngredients
2 tortillas
1/2 - 1 banana
2 - 4 strawberries
1 - 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter.
1 - 2 tablespoons strawberry jam (or whatever flavor you prefer)
 
Directions
Over medium heat, preheat a skillet or pan that's large enough for your tortilla.
Spread the peanut butter on one side of a tortilla.
Spread jam on one side of another tortilla.
Make enough banana and strawberry slices to cover the bottom of one tortilla.
Place the other tortilla (jam or peanut butter side down) on top of the other tortilla.
Cook in the pan until the bottom is crisp. This will depend on your tortillas, but it took about 2-3 minutes for me.
Flip over and cook the other tortilla until crisp.
Serve immediately. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

Congratulations Yadiore on your big accomplishment of becoming potty trained!
