We take our Read a Thons seriously

Getting kids excited about reading books can be a challenge. There are more things than ever that compete for our attention, and some parents struggle to get their children to read a book. One of the things that works well in my house is… essentially bribery. We load up on treats, we find a stack of books, and we pull out every blanket that we own to build “nests” for the kids. They love it!

Our kids are pretty young still: six, four, two, so they are fairly easy to bribe and manipulate. Do you have any tricks to help young children, or older kids to spend time with books?

I have enjoyed opportunities to work in the medical device field. I have fulfilled various roles during my relatively short career: Quality Assurance, Sales, Management, Supervisory Roles, and Training. I really like my job, but I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
