For each book your child reads, they get to add a new chain. (keep track, by writing the names of the books on each chain link) If you have older kids that are reading longer books, add a chain for every 30 minutes or hour that child reads. [Would be great to add a line for when they cross, a treat or special outing is awarded]
Part of becoming a strong reader is learning to pick books that fit you as a reader. A book should interest the child, but should also challenge him/her as a reader, but not so much that he/she can't comprehend the book. I definitely want to have a poster like this in my class someday because I want to do all I can to help my students become better readers.
