How I Help My Daughter To Embrace Summer Reading!




I Can Read! Books Become an I Can Read! Member

For one thing, my daughter, Gracie, loves to read. I want to make that perfectly clear. But trying to get her to read when she would much rather go swimming is another thing!


HarperCollins Children’s Books wants to make sure my readers are aware of the number one beginner reader series in the country. I Can Read! is the official sponsor of this conversation. It's the open door to a child’s adventure with the most beloved characters in the history of children’s literature. It a proven series for encouraging young readers from early reading together to advanced reading alone. The series debuted in 1957 with the introduction of a familiar favorite, Little Bear. It was one of the first ever easy-to-read books that children could read independently, and has been in print ever since. Now with more than 6 million I Can Read! books sold, including 200 titles, I Can Read! books is the best series to take children step by step into the wonderful world of reading on their own. Please be sure to incorporate some of this background information in your post, or reference more information on the series, along with a complete list of I Can Read! books and activities.



Here are some of my personal tips for your little readers!


1. The Library!


My Issaquah Library has a tremendous summer reading program for kids from reading contests to famous visiting authors to special surprise programs! Most libraries do, too. I urge you to check out your nearest location!




2. I've mentioned before that Gracie is an avid dumpster diver and thrift store diva. I don't even have to urge her to go to the book section of Goodwill. Make a game of this with your child! It's fun and Gracie has even found some 1st editions!






3. There's nothing like a children's book club. Most offer books for free or a nominal fee when you join and kids just love getting books in the mail! Who doesn't?






4. I, for one, love getting junk mail and so I sign up for everything and anything free! Sometimes I use Gracie's name and this generates mailings of free address stickers in her name! She loves it and uses the stickers to claim her books and even write more letters than she did!
