40 Book Challenge

Welcome to the 40 Book Challenge, an independent reading challenge for your child! At BSE we are working towards a growth mindset, and this includes reading. Barbara Marinak, author of No More Reading for Junk: Best Practices for Motivatiing Readers, defines motivation to read as, “…the likelihood of engaging in a reading task and persisting despite challenges.” We want our students to grow as readers not just for the few short years they are with us, but throughout their entire lives.
