How Do You Get Your Kids to Embrace Summer Reading?

I Can Read!
Summer’s here and we’re loving the time to just enjoy the weather. My six year old has caught the reading fever. She is doing impressively well. Her favorite books are from the I CAN READ series. Particularly, Barbie and Fancy Nancy.
If you’re not familiar with the I Can Read books, they are the number one beginner reader series in the country. I Can Read! is the open door to a child’s adventure with the most beloved characters in the history of children’s literature. It is the premiere and proven series for encouraging young readers from early reading together to advanced reading alone. The series debuted in 1957 with the introduction of a familiar favorite, Little Bear. It was one of the first ever easy-to-read books that children could read independently and has been in print ever since. Now with more than 6 million I Can Read! books sold, including 200 titles, I Can Read! books is the best series to take children step by step into the wonderful world of reading on their own.

The Divine Miss M is pleased that she can read anything in the category ONE and is quite skilled at Level 2. She’s reading up a storm and with each book her confidence grows and she’s determined to keep going! I love it.

While The Divine Miss M has no issues finding time to read, we’re using reading as a reward system. The children are welcome to sit next to me and snuggle while we each read our own book. They can go to their rooms at bedtime and if they read quietly they can stay up as long as they want.

There are so many Summer Reading programs in the community. Barnes and Nobel has an excellent one where if a child reads eight books they earn a book. Our library has a Summer Reading program the children are excited about where they earn a monthly prize and at the end of the summer a free book.

We’re baking together and I love having my children read the recipes.

We spent one afternoon compiling a list of our  50 Favorite  Books we love to read.
