***One-Day*** V.Reader Giveaway: Tips For Encouraging Kids to Read [CLOSED]

Our Winner is #19 - Heather Ransom

If you have visited my site in the past, then you know that I love coming up with creative ways to promote learning. If you have not already taken the V.Reader Summer Reading Pledge, it is not too late to do so. Summer is only half over and there is still plenty of summer reading fun to be had.
