Summer Reading Ideas

Summer is a great time to enjoy reading! It’s a great activity for winding down after a busy day or even to enjoy outdoors when its too hot too play. Lots of book clubs can be even be done virtually. Make it fun by reading books, then watching the coordinating movie to compare. Have a contest amongst your children to see who can pick the most interesting book or read the most.
