Summer Reading Ideas for Kindergarteners

There’s nothing like curling up with a great book by the pool, especially on vacation.

Make Reading a Daily Habit

First, find a way to integrate reading time into other fun summer activities, so it doesn’t feel like an obligation. For example, if your child loves swimming, enjoy some outdoor reading together before lunchtime. Meanwhile, your child can also practice reading during other tasks, like grocery shopping or cooking.  

Summer Reading Ideas

Take a Trip to Your Local Library

We highly recommend signing your child up for a library card.  At first, accompany your child and help them navigate the library and the various types of books now available to them. Then, give them some unaccompanied time to explore.

Sign Up for Summer Reading Programs

Many libraries offer incentives for summer reading, including coupons for free food and prizes.  This will encourage your child to finish books and track their reading time throughout the summer. For example, Pizza Hut has a popular program called BOOK IT!. A program which awards students a free personal pizza when they achieve reading goals.

Read About a Family Travel Destination

If you’re planning to go on a family trip this summer, encourage reading by checking out books about your destination.  For example, if you’re traveling to Paris,  you can learn about French food by checking out some picture books.  By the time you land in the City of Lights, your child will know all about ratatouille and how to say “thank you” in French.

Enjoy Audiobooks on Road Trips

Likewise, if you’re planning a family road trip, you’ll have plenty of free time in the car for activities. We recommend audiobooks so you can enjoy a lighthearted read as a family.   This will keep your kindergartener engaged and attentive on a long trip.
