As we approach the summer, school and corresponding activities are coming to an end. This is the time of the year when parents think about the ways in which they can keep their kids both busy and engaged, without taking much away from their well-deserved vacation. Making your kids interested in books and reading over these months is not easy, but there are tricks you can implement to make the task bearable. If you are planning a trip, take a book and read about your destination. You may also consider programs frequently found in libraries that will have the kids join a group and talk about the books they read.
- Joining a summer reading program can be a great motivator for vacation reading.
- Consider watching a movie that’s based on a book to inspire your child to want to learn more.
- If you have a vacation planned, enlist your child in reading up to do research on the location.
“Summer is all about splashing in the pool, running in the yard, playing at the park, and relaxing with friends.”
