Get Your Kids Energized About Reading in Scholastic's Summer Reading Challenge

Tomorrow is the last day of school and I’ve been preparing for this day. As a first grader, my child has grown leaps and bounds with his reading. Some of his favorite books include chapter books, books that explain “How or Why” and of course, he still has a great love for books like the Magic School Bus.

We’ve worked hard this school year and want to help him keep this knowledge over the summer months. This is why I have partnered with Scholastic in their Summer Reading program.

As part of our partnership, Scholastic sent us a goodie box filled with books, bookmarks and activity sheets to get started in the summer reading program.

Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

I encourage you to join us! You can visit the Scholastic Summer Reading program online and sign up right from their website.

This year’s challenge is “Power Up & Read” and it encourages children to keep reading. The more that your child reads, up to 12 original short stories by best selling children’s authors will be unlocked.

This summer, Scholastic has partnered with ENERGIZER to run the Summer Reading Challenge and to help encourage their kid’s with fun ways to grow the joy of reading.

    This is such a great program. I created a summer reading list for my son but I wish I would have known about this one in advance. Reply

    Summer reading is so important as they can really slide. We do 30 minutes a day to keep up all summer. Reply

    What a great partnership and program. Reading is so empowering for our kids! My little one will be leaving for France in a few days and she is packing a few books for the long plane ride and summer reading with her grand parents :-) Reply

    Reading is so important for children. It's way more than just a story - we always pack a book or two when we go away for summer vacation. Reply

    We love Scholastic and I'm not surprised they come up with such a great summer reading challenge. Throughout the school year, I order books for each of my children every month. It would be great to keep the level of reading going during the summer! Reply

    What a great summer reading program. My older son has a reading list for school but I've been trying to figure out how to get my younger son in on the fun and this is a great way! Reply

    When I was little I LOVED reading. I would visit a library at least once a week if I could! My kids, are a bit harder. They don't love reading like I did and I am going to change that asap. Great program! I will check for more great tips! Reply
