There are so many things we can do to help our kids fall more in love with reading. If having a goal to shoot for is motivating for your child, this free printable has everything you’ll need to create a family summer reading challenge.

Choose Your Challenge

With a twelve book challenge and a twenty-four book challenge, each filled with creative categories to get your child reading in a variety of areas, you can choose the one that’s just right to help your children reach their reading goals.

Don’t Forget Mom & Dad

We know that nothing is more powerful than a parent’s example in getting kids excited about reading. That’s why we’ve created a separate challenge for moms and dads, so your kids will see you growing as a reader right alongside them.

Celebrate Your Successes

We’ve created lists of our top book recommendations so you’ll never run out of ideas for what to read next and a list of ways to celebrate your reading accomplishments. We can’t wait to read along with you this summer!

Download your free summer reading packet here! And when you share about your summer reading on social media, be sure to tag us @homeschoolcompass or use the hashtag #homeschoolcompass. We’d love to share in your reading adventures!
