Keep your kids reading over the summer

Get your kids reading this summer! As a teacher, mom, and book nerd, I’m always reading something – for me or for someone slightly younger. Click here for my recommendations by age and topic.

My favorite “get your child to read trick” is (drum roll please . . . ) let them read in bed. Make it easy and fun by giving them a headlamp! Even my four year old “reads” in bed.

Don’t forget to sign your kids up for your library’s Summer Reading Programs. They’ll earn prizes and a free book!

Reading builds brain cells, develops imagination and gives kids an activity. (Subsequently giving tired parents a break. . .) It’s win-win.

If you need some grown-up book suggestions for yourself – email me or friend me on Goodreads. (Told you I was a book nerd.)

Barnes and Noble has a summer reading program.
