Maybe one of your goals for 2023 is getting your little one to read more. But there’s no need to make new year's resolutions for that to happen! This kid-friendly challenge makes reading feel like an exciting game for your growing reader, and will help them start the year strong with books they love.
The challenge consists of 10 mini reading goals for your child to complete throughout the month of January. You'll find those below, along with our top book recommendations for each one.
Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to do a reading challenge. Your child can check off the book goals in any order they’d like. Don’t sweat if it takes them longer than January to complete them all — this reading challenge is designed to be fun. Plus, it can be used any time of the year! When your child has fun reading, they’ll naturally turn into an avid reader.
