It’s the most wonderful time of the year
–summer reading time!
A stack of books can have a holiday feel, (if you don’t live in my house where stacks of books are indicative of a gentle madness.) Here are 6 ways to get your stacks started.
3. Children’s publishers: Scholastic has a fun online program if you like to click around and earn badges, interact with others and design your own avatar. The site is cluttered but not too hard to figure out. Of course, since it’s Scholastic, your child will be pitched to, so take it with a grain of salt. Sylvan Learning Center has a similar take on summer reading, called Book Adventure.
5. PBS! If you are a PBS family, PBS kids has a roster of summer reading promotions as well as links to many of the sites I mentioned here. Download this awesome PBS Kids reading journal.
6. Grandma knows best, at least in our family she does. So I wandered over to grandparents.com to see what they had to say about summer reading.
7. I’m an equal opportunity librarian so I have something for you too. In my inbox is my free .pdf for Summer Beach Reading from The Modern Mrs. Darcy. You can sign up for yours here. It’s a little confusing, you must request her monthly blog and in the confirmation email is a link to the Summer Reading Guide.
