Saturday Snapshots - BOOK IT!

This little gal was BEYOND excited last Saturday to go and redeem her BOOK IT Reading Award at Pizza Hut.
Not only was it her first reading award, but it was also the first time we'd ever taken the kids to Pizza Hut. Noah was stoked too. He LOVES pizza. Abby? Not so much. She does not like "the sauce".

Tomatoes? Yes.

Tomato sauce? No.

Even still, she was so excited about that reading award and getting her own PEPPERONI personal pan pizza that she ate the whole thing! And she kept saying how "delicious" it was. (Ours was really good too. It's been awhile since I've had a deep dish pizza - yum!)

The waiter made a BIG deal out her award too and had her sign a poster that was up on the wall and then gave her and Noah two quarters each to put in the plastic egg toy machine and get a prize! How nice is that?

When we got home, she kept reminding me to make sure to write the other books we've read on the calendar in her assignment book so she can earn another reading award for January.

I just hope we have the same waiter again next time. But in case we don't, I'd better make sure to bring some extra quarters.

How exciting! I remember "BOOK IT" from my own childhood - and my days teaching in the classroom! I credit the program with getting me interested in reading for pleasure.

Oh Kelli, we love the BookIt awards too, and too rarely cash them in! You've inspired me!

Your daughter looks so justly proud. :)

Am adding you to the Saturday Snapshots linky. Thanks so much for playing along!

I did the rewards program too in school! I loved it! We had these buttons that they would stick stickers on, and once it got all the way filled then you got your free pizza. It really was a treat as we didn't go out to eat that often.

Thanks for coming by my blog today.

What an exciting step! I think every kid deserves to go get that personal pizza the first time they get that award.
But, I hate that it costs $40.00 to feed the rest of the family. Sometimes I really wonder if it is an "award" or just a coupon.
But yeah! Abby! Keep up the good work!
