National Reading Day and The Book of Life

National Reading Day is a day we take seriously in our house. Okay, not so much usually. Does anyone know when this day actually is? Haha. Well, it's today - January 23rd! We do love reading though and I know we're not alone in that. 

As you might know we have been talking about the wonderful family movie 'The Book of Life' lately. It tells the story of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, as he embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastic worlds where he must face his greatest fears and realize what is most important - family and loved ones. Fox Home Entertainment Insiders, in cooperation with Pinhole Press, recently sent us a box full of 'The Book of Life' goodies to celebrate National Reading Day. Yay! In the box were many fun surprises including a $45 Gift Certificate from Pinhole Press to make a professionally printed book to tell our child's own story. Take a look at some more of the materials included in our box.

National Reading Day is an annual event which celebrates and encourages reading by younger children and is celebrated in thousands of schools around the United States. We used our supplies to make beautiful pictures and coloring pages celebrating family traditions, roots, and the importance of honoring our family's past to embrace our future. 'The Book of Life' encourages young readers to continue reading and learning in the new year!

Doesn't it look like we had fun? There is nothing like being creative! Do you celebrate reading in your home?
