Are you ready for Quassy?

The final reward you will get for reaching your goal is a trip to Quassy Amusement Park!  

You can go on fun rides like a roller coaster, a free fall tower, a tube slide, a tilt-a-wheel, and even a giant pirate ship.  

There’s also a water park there where you can find water slides and a saturation station.  You won’t leave the park dry.  

If you want something a little more relaxing, you can ride on a carousel, go on a ferry ride, or try out some paddle boats.  

You will get your ticket to Quassy when you finally reach your goal- either 6, 12, or 24 books.  

All your hard work of reading will lead to a whole ton of fun!
