Put reading first with 20 minutes a day spent reading or being read to this summer:
- Sign up the whole family for the summer reading program at your local public library. And check out the exciting new pilot of an online summer reading platform at participating libraries throughout Arizona (sign up to track your reading online).
- Visit your local library using the “Find a Library” tool again and again this summer. Ask your librarian for suggestions of great books to read to your young child.
- Use the “Find a Book” tool to find books that match a developing reader’s interests and reading level.
Set a goal of reading 20 minutes every day. For very young children and struggling readers, that can be spread out through the day.
Use a reading log to track the time spent reading.
