Idaho Youth Ranch Reading Program

This weekend we went to the Orphum theater to watch "Wreck It Ralph" for $2 a person. While we were downtown the boys decided they wanted to see if the water fountain was running. Of course I quickly agreed as the water fountain is right next door to the Idaho Youth Ranch. I can not go in there without finding something fabulous at an amazing price and I love that the proceeds go to help kids. While we there we noticed a sign with names announcing kids meeting a reading goal. My 7 yo is an avid reader so he desperately wanted to find out how to get his name on the sign too. They are running an amazing program! Your child reads a book writes it on the form that you can get at the store. You take the form back to the store and they get to pick out a free book! They can do this 5 times. After the 5th time they get a special prize and their name on the board! Lucky me we will be going more often now!


  1. Nice! I didn't know. We will deffinately be going there more now.

  2. Fun stuff to repurpose into new stuff!
