Wonderful poster! I gave this to my daughter for Christmas. She is already a big reader, but this encourages her even more to read because she wants to be able to scratch books off the list!
I got two of these this holiday season for friends with new babies. The families are avid readers and love books, so the poster is perfect for them and something they can use for years to come.
I think the idea is fabulous and makes for an inspirational gift. A young adult version would be awesome (this is the age where reading really takes on life-long meaning). The kids selections are still good, but a 12-15 year old reader likely would be able to scratch off half the titles upon receipt, and the adult version contains some titles with mature subjects they might not be ready for. It also might be fun if the scratch off revealed a piece of art as well.

This is so adorable and it has been so fun scratching them off. I would buy many different versions of this (i.e. adult fiction, children's fantasy, etc). A great way to encourage kids to challenge themselves!
I have the adult version of this poster and my 7 year old son, also an avid reader, helps me scratch whenever I finish a book. I was so excited to finally find a kids version. Perfect Christmas gift!

This poster is quite charming and will work a treat for a young child Christmas gift. Encourages reading and takes up minimal space for years of scratch off fun. Looks to be a quality item, although I obviously won't be testing that.

Good selection of books on the list, neat pictures for each book, and easy to scratch off. The poster is made of a thick, durable paper, and there was no damage to the paper in scratching off the squares. The scratch-off material comes off clean and didn't mar the pictures. My son was excited to receive this as a gift, and I have no complaints about it at all. Two thumbs up!
