You’ve heard it loud and clear from all of your children’s teachers: the most important thing moms and dads can do for their kids over the summer is keep reading routines alive and well. But there’s nothing worse that watching your child approach their summer reading list with a look of dread. After all, reading is supposed to be a delight, not a burden.
The experts (and crafty moms) at Homer have created a Summer Reading Challenge that will help your family keep reading routines alive and fun all summer long. So head for the hammock with Homer and start the challenge under the shade of your favorite tree!
- Read a story
- Cut out a leaf (either make your own or use the one in your child’s downloadable reading list)
- Write the story title on the leaf
- Punch a hole in the leaf and add it to a string you hang in your chid’s room

If your child completes all stories on the reading list for her age group by July 31, we’ll send her a surprise gift to celebrate her achievement.
