Reading Rewards Program
Loyal Order of Reenactment Enthusiasts (LORE) hosts a reading rewards program called, “The Knights of the Fabled Readers.” Participants receive ONE FREE adult and ONE FREE child admission per participant. To participate, read any (8) eight books from their reading list, write them down on their books-read form, and then show at the gate for free entrance. The link to this program is at http://www.renaissanceinfo.com/fabledreader/index.html.
The link does not give complete information. I was given the details via word-of-mouth from other participants I met on Adventure Schooling Yahoo group. Here’s the form: Knights of The Fabled Reader Form.
If the link doesn’t work, make your own form. Make sure that it includes eight books that your child has read or that you have read to him. Please include your child’s name, age, address, book titles and their authors.
