Baby Max: Sandbox. During playtime, Max and his sister Ruby mix delectable treats out of bubbles, berries, birdseed, and sand. When you are finished reading, visit the Read for My Summer page for some fun Max and Ruby games and activities!

The Soccer Fence, Meet Hector, who loved playing soccer in Johannesburg. He dreamed of playing on a real pitch with the boys from another part of the city, but apartheid made that impossible. This poignant story of friendship artfully depicts a brief but critical moment in South Africa’s history and the unique role that sports can play in bringing people together. After reading, head over to our program page to tell sports stories with an activity from ReadWriteThink and color the South African flag.

Skate! Follow the progress of a beginning skateboarder as he advances from basic moves to more exciting tricks and jumps. After you read, try your hand at moving sports poetry with an activity from ReadWriteThink and make a mini-skateboard.
Stay tuned for more summer reading next week!
