I don’t know about you, but I sure have a hard time reminding my kids to read during the Summer. We are always so busy running here and there to different camps, and taking vacations.
I have found the best way to get my children excited about reading and wanting to read books over the summer, is by signing them up for different summer reading programs. Summer reading programs are a great challenge for your kids. I know that mine will work heard to complete their reading journal or list if there is an incentive and reward for doing so!
Here is a fun list of reading programs and printables to help your kids want to read and keep track of the books they are reading over the summer months!

- Most public libraries have great summer reading programs that reward your kids with free books and coupons and treats!
