Something very exciting happened last week. My seven-year-old buried his nose in a book and did not come up for air until he’d read the whole thing. As a book lover and certified Child Bookworm, this makes me so happy.
To keep the momentum rolling, my mom bought him the next five books in the series. And to keep it going through the summer, I made a printable reading log to encourage kids to keep reading during the summer.
I’ll probably also bribe my kids with a trip to the frozen yogurt shop for every completed list (or maybe every two lists…turns out my oldest can read faster than I thought!). At the bottom of the list I made a cute little place for the kids to record their favorite book from the list and why they chose it. I think this is fun for the kids (and I like to see what they have to say, too!).
Need some new book ideas for the kids? You can follow my children’s books Pinterest board here. You can also find a great list of books for kids who love horses here, and fun beach-themed books here. When summer winds down, check out these great back-to-school books. And babies can get in on the fun with these board books that babies will actually be interested in! And the book my son was reading was Diary of a Minecraft Zombie, in case you’ve got a seven-year-old looking for something to read!
You can download your own printable reading log for summer below.
I’d love to hear about some of your favorite summer reading suggestions for kids!
