Notebooks

There are two versions of the notebook—one for pre-readers (recommended for children ages 0–5) and their parent or caregiver, and the other for school-age children (recommended for ages 6–12).

Pre-reader notebook

The 2019 pre-reader notebook includes the following:

  • activity suggestions for a parent or caregiver designed around five skill-building practices—Talk, Sing, Play, Write, and Read—to help raise a reader
  • space to record items read or listened to, collect stickers, record the number of minutes reading or listening, or draw pictures
  • fun reading challenges
  • a program certificate
  • a colouring page

School-age notebook

The 2019 school-age notebook includes the following:

  • a nature scavenger hunt
  • recommended STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities
  • space to record items read or listened to, collect stickers, record the number of minutes reading or listening, or draw pictures
  • fun reading challenges
  • a web advertisement with a trivia question, which encourages kids to visit our website
  • a program certificate
  • a board game

The notebooks are bilingual. Both versions of the notebook are laid out in a flipped style, where English comprises one half and French the other.

Each child who joins the program receives an age-appropriate notebook at registration.

Web Access Sticker

The web access code is printed on a sticker that children can stick onto the inside cover of their notebook. Children can enter their unique access code on the TD Summer Reading Club website to create their online notebook, and store virtual stickers and items read.

Each child who joins the program receives a web access code sticker at registration.

Stickers

Children can visit their local library to receive the stickers. Usually, library staff will ask children a question about the book they’ve read or listened to and distribute one sticker per book. Sometimes, a library may choose to distribute the whole sticker sheet.

If you are unable to bring your child to the library to collect stickers throughout the summer, you may request that your library give you the whole sticker sheet when you register, and you may give them out at home when your child finishes reading or listening to a book or other reading materials.
