If you have young readers at home, summer is the perfect time to get them excited about books by introducing them to enticing new characters and series from a summer reading list.
Kids who are ages 6 to 7 are just beginning to explore independent reading and deciding what types of stories capture their interest. According to the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report, 7th Edition, the top thing kids want in a book is humor. They also want books that help them become more familiar with topics that interest them, and books that help them imagine and understand other people’s lives.
One of the best ways to keep kids learning this summer is to join the Scholastic Summer Reading-a-Palooza, a summer reading program designed to develop lifelong readers by encouraging reading for fun during the summer. This year, your kids can experience the challenge through Scholastic Home Base, a free digital destination which offers stories, characters, and games, in a safe community for readers!
Through Home Base, your child can help unlock book donations for kids with limited or no access to books by starting and keeping “reading streaks” when they read every day over the summer. Learn more about the challenge here.
