Summer Reading Challenge - Details & Printable

Last week I shared my summer reading list along with a glimpse into books I hope to read with Connor this summer. Reading is something that I'm very passionate about, something we want to continuously nourish in Connor. We visit the library weekly, bringing home a new huge stack of books each time and we read every single day.  I was so pleased when Connor started to show an interest in being read to and reading books himself. I had so hoped it would be something he would love as much as I do.

That being said Courtney, Elizabeth and I came up with a Summer Reading Challenge for the kiddos. Nothing high maintenance, but a fun way to mimic summer reading programs that start up once you get in school. Sometimes we could all use a little motivation to go out and find new books.

The challenge is 12 weeks long with the goal being a new book every week - it runs from June 1st to August 20th. Every three weeks there will be a link up to share how the challenge is going, which new books you've been reading, how you've liked them, and any activities you came up with to go along with them, etc etc. The link up dates are: June 18th, July 9th, July 30th, and August 20th.

You can snag the graphic below to keep track of your progress - and who doesn't enjoy checking off things from a list.

We've even come up with some themes that you can pick from to add a little bit more fun to the challenge each week. You absolutely do not have to pick books based on these themes or any themes at all. It is just an extra little something to add to your reading goals if you so choose.

And, at the end of it all there will be a 'hooray you've completed the challenge' giveaway! A little something for mom and a little something for kiddo - you just need to have joined in on the Summer Reading Challenge and linked up at least once to be eligible. That is all there is to it. We'd love for you to read with us this summer. I for one am always looking for another good book. Happy reading!

Happy reading friends!
