Summer is a wonderful time to read as many books as you can stand.
I know. It’s how I spent pretty much every summer growing up.
We’ve always encouraged our kids to read as much as possible, but they tend to read by themselves in their own rooms.
So – to help them stretch out and read with each other and to try new works, we’re using these printable summer reading challenge bookmarks this year!
These are simple (and fun!) ways to motivate kids to read new books with new people this summer.
And you can get a set free!

Printable Summer Reading Challenge Bookmarks
To use this printable summer reading challenge, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
The printable includes one sheet with five identical bookmarks.
We have four children, so I wanted them each to have their own. Plus an extra one for me to join along.
These are really simple to use.
Just print the sheet (as many copies as you need). Then use a paper cutter to divide them into individual bookmarks.
If you like, you might want to laminate the sheet before handing the bookmarks out. They’ll hold up better that way.
As you can see, each bookmark lists 14 different ways to read this summer.
There are new places to read, new types of books to try, and new people to read books to.
Hold your own summer reading program by setting a date for kids to check off all of the items on their bookmarks.
Be sure to hand out a prize or have a simple party to celebrate!
