Mark your calendar: September 6 is National Read a Book Day! It’s an annual awareness day that encourages both children and adults to take a break and read one of your favorite books or even a new one.
Reading is one of the most important skills we teach our children. What better way to celebrate national book day than doing fun holiday activities for kids! You’ll find engaging Halloween printables, Christmas hands-on crafts, 4th of July DIY tutorials, and more!
Ways to Celebrate National Reading Day
Research has shown that even 10 minutes a day of reading can have a hugely positive impact on kids’ development, both now and in the future!
We have a free gift for you! To motivate kids to read more, we’ve created a reading log to help your children keep track of the books they have read. Isn’t that cool?!
Reading logs are a great way to help children develop a life-long reading habit and also one of the best summer activities when is too warm to be outside.
Want to help your children read more but don’t know how? We have tons of reading challenge ideas for kids, including printable checklists, challenge logs, reading trackers, printable certificates and everything to help your kid read more!
