Always looking for ideas for the kids when husband is away little and often. Thanks to this website I found Reading Force something to with kids and free to sign up I instantly did and its one of the best things I've done with my children while my husbands away. Firstly they sent us a huge parcel full of their special Reading force scrapbooks and a book for each child. I loved the books even had special Reading force stickers on the front and a book plate inside. The books were completely age appropriate and they even sent my daughters favourite author.
We have read the stories together and are slowly filling up their scrapbooks. It gives us something to talk about with Daddy over facetime as well as can share though emails our drawings and see what he might think about the book. Next time I think we might send Daddy away with the books so he'll have to read them to us!
One of the numerous reasons this is very helpful is it doesn't matter how long the serving member goes away for. We can do it when he's back or over weeks at a time. It brings us together as a family sharing stories about books even when far apart rather than a reminder of the distance or time until the return.
Thank you Reading Force for looking after us all while Daddy is away, for bringing is closer together as a family and for all of the wonderful books!
