As a kid, I loved to read. I was all about summer reading activities and challenges as a child. I loved filling out my summer reading chart at the library and checking out as many new books as I could. Reading is a great way to pass time during those lazy summer days and I’ve found a few ideas to help you encourage your child to participate in summer reading.
Make a tote for your child’s library books with their favorite story on the check out card. They’ll want to take their bag of books everywhere and bring it back to the library ASAP to show it off.
