I love summer. I love the weather. I love the sun. I love being outdoors. I love the feeling of freedom. And I love a good summer reading challenge.
We always do the summer reading program at our library, but I’ll admit that after awhile the allure of prizes wears off. What my kids really crave is something new and different; something that matches that “special” feeling that summer brings. In that spirit, this summer I’ve come up with a way to change up our reading routine.
We’re doing a Summer Reading Scavenger Hunt.
Not Your Average Summer Reading Challenge
The Summer Reading Scavenger Hunt is not your normal book list or summer reading challenge. This scavenger hunt is going to take you to some of your favorite places, both indoors and outdoors. My goal is to take reading out of our homes and into the places we love to be. My hope is that our families will learn that anywhere can be a great place to read a good book.
Another key element to successful summer reading is great books. We’re loving our Summer Reader Set from Sonlight; the five books in our set really capture the sense of adventure that summer brings. They’re fitting our needs both for individual reading and family read-aloud time, and I love seeing the boys talk about the stories together. Sonlight has sets for elementary, middle, and high school, so they fit well into almost every family’s summer reading plan.
