Tips for getting your children to read during the summer

One of the many challenges of summer is getting your kids to read.  I am an avid reader and have been blessed with all four of my children loving books and wanting to read more and more.  From the youngest to the oldest someone all ways has a book in their hands.

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.

Here are a few ideas to get your kids to keep on reading this summer.

1.Keep age appropriate books available.  Put a stack of books next to their bed and allow them to read before bed time.

2. My kids always take a book with them in the car, it's great for when their is a long wait at a restaurant or doctor's office.

3. Reward them with books.  Instead of giving an allowance of money this summer, let them choose a book at the bookstore.

4. Visit your local library- a lot of library's offer free story hours.

5. Check out your local bookstore- Barnes and Nobles and Borders Bookstore both have a summer reading program.   Read a certain number of books and your child will get a free book.

6. Pass it down.  My oldest daughter has found some of the books that I used to read.  She is enjoying reading books that are classics's yet still great books, and she loves the fact that they used to be mine!

7. Turn off the T.V. for awhile and get out the books, you will find that your children just may prefer the books over the T.V.

Most of all have fun and let your children use their imagination!  For more tips stop by TwitterMoms for more discussions on getting your children to read this summer.
