So Who Is Ziggy?
The Zigzag Zebra (affectionately known as Ziggy) is a familiar face to those who utilize the pre-reading program from All About Learning Press. For those who have never met him though, you’ll soon discover that Ziggy is a young zebra who loves to read right alongside young students. He is a supportive friend for beginning readers, and he loves to have a good time as he helps kids learn.
Which is exactly why Ziggy is so excited to join your kids for an exciting reading adventure this summer! Of course, they couldn’t send Ziggy to spend the summer with all of you, so they’re sending Ziggy’s representative instead…meet Flat Ziggy!
Flat Ziggy’s Summer Reading Adventure!
We were lucky enough to stumble upon Flat Ziggy’s summer reading adventure last year. Our family, and a whole lot of others, had so much fun with Flat Ziggy that All About Learning Press has decided to carry on the tradition and send Flat Ziggy back out on the road. He’s especially excited to share his love of sailing with all of his friends!
For the next four weeks, Flat Ziggy would like to join you and your children on a fun adventure. Here are some of the activities your child will be able to enjoy with Flat Ziggy:
- Keep an activity checklist. Take Ziggy along on all your summer adventures and check off the fun activities your children and Flat Ziggy share together.
- Keep a reading log to record all the books your child reads with Flat Ziggy.
- Take LOTS of pictures! Going on a picnic? Bring Flat Ziggy along and take a picture to share with us. Reading a good book? Read it to Flat Ziggy and take a picture of that, too. Going to Grandma’s lake house? Don’t forget to pack Flat Ziggy! We’d love to see your pictures of Flat Ziggy sunning himself on the beach.
- Win prizes! At the end of Flat Ziggy’s Reading Adventure, All About Learning Press will be awarding prizes to a few of Flat Ziggy’s lucky friends! And the best part? You don’t have to be a good reader or a good photographer to win a prize. Everyone who submits a photo, an activity checklist, or a reading log will be eligible to win one of their great prizes.
