How about keeping a journal of your child’s favorite books?

Posted on: January 27, 2010


 

What book(s) did you you read to your kids last night? What book did your kids read to themselves? What book did you read?

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could look back at a list of books your child (or you) read? Not just over the summer, but for the whole year?

How about if you could see the titles of all (or most) the books they read while they were growing up?

Can you imagine what a priceless gift that would be to both you and your child?

It doesn’t matter if you include just the title, date and author in your entry. Or if you write down your kid’s reactions to the book such as “Emily loved putting her fingers through the holes of everything the hungry caterpillar ate.” Or “John just wanted to find Goldbug on each page.” Or “Jennifer didn’t like the part with the Wicked Witch of the West.”

The only thing that matters is having one. How do you make that happen?

Step 1: Answer the question that was at the top of this post: What book(s) did you you read to your kids last night? What book did your kids read to themselves? What book did you read?

Step 2: Write it down.

Step 3: Repeat daily.

 

(I’d love to see what you and your kids read last night. Please comment! )

This is great! I would also add that the local libraries have summer reading programs that typically include a reading log of some kind. But a year round log would be even better!
