Would you like to create more togetherness for your family this summer? Here is some great summer reading!
Summer is supposed to be a relaxing time, but I’ve found that kids who have too much free time often get into trouble. Also, my kids are also prone to fight because they don’t have many activities to pull all ages together. Do you find the same thing?
We have a lot of time together during our homeschooling schedule reading aloud, and we love it. Over the years, my homeschool kids have spanned every age, and it’s an amazing thing to see the children of different ages laughing (and sometimes crying) together as I read.
I decided to bring everyone together one summer through the Sonlight Summer Reading Program. I chose the middle school readers since they looked as if they’ll appeal to all ages. Also, since I had five girls at the time I chose the books that the girls would be most interested in …. and my son did mind, in fact, he enjoyed it!
My kids were SO excited about these books. Also, we had a teen friend from Europe that stayed for a month, as well. I thought these middle school readers will be perfect since English is her second language.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider summer reading:
- It’s super easy. All you need to do is gather everyone together and read.
- Kids of all ages can enjoy the same book.
- It provides a meaningful experience to fill up summer days.
- It provides a time of intimacy as everyone gathers close.
- It takes kids on new adventures and fun experiences without leaving home.
I encourage you to check out Sonlight’s summer reading program. If you do, let me know how your family is enjoying the books!
