Draw a large caterpillar "Bookworm" on a sheet of white paper. Make several copies. With every book that your child reads, they are allowed to color in one of the sections of the bookworm with a bright color of their choice. Keep bookworm on the fridge or favourite message board. When all is completed and "colorful", you can reward your child with a special treat. For example; going to the book store to buy a new book or something as simple as being treated to an ice cream cone. If you can't afford new books, go to the library, your child can get his/her own library card or visit a thrift store for used books.
Your child can keep each bookworm, name it and put the title of the book on the paper too, then insert into a folder or binder and keep them all. Have your child give out Bookworms to friends and start a Bookworm Club!
