Spread the Love at the Public Library with Summer Reading

Sharing is caring!

Thank you public library summer reading program- my children see their reading record card as a challenge to do ALL the reading until every box is checked. Whole summer? Never, they’ll be finished in a week flat.Ultrahug at the library

One blissful week of near silence in my house. You, summer reading program, are the best!ultrahug at the library

The genius that added “reading to someone else” as a means to earn extra checks on the chart, I could kiss. So often my younger kids, who can’t yet read alone get discouraged after a day of summer reading when big siblings have a million boxes checked and the littles only have a few. As much as I love the big kids buried in a book with this summer reading challenge, the little ones on my heels all day saying “Can you read, can you read?” makes me feel like a bad Mom. I can only read aloud so many hours in a day!  This year, the big kids are begging littles to come listen to a story for those extra check marks, and I’m off the hook!Ultrahug at the library

I love the library in the summer, it’s cool, it’s quiet, and it’s free! You better believe my kids are signed up for every available activity, show and club for the next 10 weeks!ultrahug at the library

  1. My 3 year old LOOOOOOOOOVES, like seriously loves…BOOKS! She can’t actually read yet, but I read multiple books to her every single day and she pays attention so well that when she “reads” to herself, she’s actually reiterating what I’ve read! And her accuracy is impressive. Anyways, I’ve only taken her to our local library once, which was a hit. I need to get her back there a ton more this summer. Your kids are too cute, btw. Very cool that they’re into reading, too. I hope mine keeps this passion, too 🙂 -Misty

    1. I love this! So precious when little ones ‘read’. My aunt, who’s taught reading and literacy forever always remarks what a great skill being able to ‘read’ back the story is.

  2. The library is such an awesome place for kids of any age. Ours has a baby/toddler area that we absolutely love, especially now that it’s so hot in Arizona. It’s a fun place to learn and stay out of the heat 🙂

  3. The library has always been one of my favorite places to go during the summer. I love the variety of educational hands-on activities they offer.
