Summer Reading!

My kids love the summer reading program at our library.  The make their own forms to keep track of their reading.  I wanted to share their form with you and some ideas for summer reading.

Example of chart filled in.  (file is blank.)
Some things we love about summer reading:

1. Older ones read to little ones and count the minutes read.  Littles get credit for hearing the book.

2. Fun prizes at our library.  We try to finish early for the best selection of free books.

3. A great way to encourage reading without nagging from mom. 

4. The kids are motivated to keep track of books and times for prizes.

What is there not to love??

Some fun books we are looking at this year.
