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.
How do you get your kiddos to embrace Summer reading? You can leave a comment or join me on the Twitter Mom’s discussion page.
