By Emily, sponsored by!

Now that Summer is merely days away we’re scrambling to prepare ourselves. Prepare for the over exhaustion by packing too much in June, the lazy days after the 4th of July and then hoping they haven’t totally lost all they learned for the new year in August. No matter what month you’re looking at this idea is good for all! The Elephant and Piggie Like Reading! Series launched a new title “The Good For Nothing Button” and it is so cute.  Summer Ideas: Read-A-ThonIt’s all about a Button that does nothing according to its owner Yellow Bird. But Red and Blue bird discover the button DOES make them happy, and that is something? It just makes Yellow Bird mad, which is also something. 🙂Summer Ideas: Read-A-ThonAll you need to do is set up a comfy cozy read-a-thon area for your kids and surprise them with it! Set up cozy pillows and blankets and lay out a few favorites and a few new titles and see what happens. Put together up a yummy breakfast they can snack on and enjoy a lazy morning of reading!Summer Ideas: Read-A-ThonElephant and Piggie also shared with us this super great coloring kit you can download and print right at home!
