Summer Reading Tips


Children who love to read, can do so on a greater scale during the summer vacations . You are sure to find reading enticing this summer with these tips.

Go somewhere new

The place where you read a book can make the story even more meaningful. Take books about animals along on camping trips or sit under a tree while reading an adventure tale.

Read "around the house"

See how much reading material can be found around the house without opening a book. Read newspapers, magazines, comics, book extracts on  websites, cereal boxes, toothpaste labels, or mail that comes to your house. Words to read are everywhere-you just have to look!

Take a trip through a book

Read about the places you are planning to go this summer, before you get there. You'll know more about what you're going to see while the rest of the family are busy packing their bags.

Read books from A-Z

Don't know where to start for summer reading? Let the alphabet help you. Start with an author whose last name begins with A and see how close to Z you can get by the end of the summer.

Buy books

Instead of spending your pocket money on pizzas, burgers and ice creams, you could try buying books. To do this more effectively start saving your pocket money a few months before the vacations. Alternatively you could ask your closest friends and relatives to buy you the books of your choice for birthdays, festivals etc.

Keep a reading journal

Write about the books that you read in a summer reading journal.

At the end of the season you can see how much and what you've read. Best of all, you'll never forget what the best part about a book was. You can even use your reading journal to make book recommendations to your friends.

Read aloud with adults
 
Adults need to read just as much as kids do. Reading aloud before bedtime or after a meal is a fun way to spend some time with your parents. Whether you're the reader or they are, don't forget to improvise different voices or wear a silly hat to make the story more fun!

Start a book club

Neighborhood kids love to do things in groups during the summer. Why not start a book club with your friends? Just agree to read the same book, then set some time to talk about the book either after you finish a few chapters or at the end.

Find a fun series

Find a series of books by an author who you enjoy. By the end of the summer you'll find you know the characters almost as well as you know your friends from school.
