We gave each child a calendar that they could mark off every time they read. We told them that if they read for 30 days, they would get a special treat.
Well, we promised them a special treat, but we couldn’t think of anything. At one of our presidency meetings we were discussing the treat that we would be giving to each child that read the Book of Mormon. The 1st counselor had the idea of giving them a book mark. Then the idea hit me….yeah, they can be Book of Mormon book worms!! We thought of making our own book marks that had a worm on it, but we decided to just buy some. We decided to give them a book mark and a bag of gummy worms with a little note attached that said, ‘I’m a Book of Mormon book worm!’
The children that received this special treat loved it.
Another idea you could do: make a cute book mark that says ‘I’m a Book of Mormon book worm!’ Give that to the children along with a dirt & worms cupcake: Chocolate cupcake with frosting, crushed oreos (dirt), and gummy worms.
