2. Broaden Their Horizons
Once you get your kids reading, sometimes the challenge can be to get them to try new things. This Summer Reading Challenge is a great way to help make that happen. Treat it like the reading program at your local library – let your kids keep track of what they read and offer a prize if they complete the list. You can print it as is, or edit it to make it just right.
