Regardless whether your child wins the shark costume or not, we recommend offering some incentive for them when they complete the challenge--whether it is an extra piece of candy on Halloween, a baking adventure with you, or a trip to the local bakery/dollar store, making an event of accomplishing this goal will help associate hard work with nice reward. Hope this may start a virtuous cycle of Chinese reading!
