Not having done this before, I'm not entirely sure how to award packages. I do know that prizes have never really motivated me, and I do want books to go where they are wanted and used. My thinking currently is that I may give winners a choice of packages, so people get the books they really want!
MotherReader used three categories of participation, that being up to 23 hours, up to 35 hours, and up to 48 hours. The wonderful Carol Rasco of Reading is Fundamental has once again graciously offered our winners RIF's Celebrations collections to be donated to a school or non-profit of the recipients choice. Other prizes will include:
