  What moms & teachers are saying...

As a busy mom I don’t have time to make something like this or think through putting something like this together. This is a very well thought out resource. I know parents will love it!

This guide is FANTASTIC! The prompts are perfect! Both younger and older readers will be challenged to think and assess their own comprehension.

I look forward to using the prompts with my children this summer and setting up a Reader's Notebook. Such great ideas! I'm inspired!

Q: Why create a Summer Reading Handbook?
A: I’ve been working with young readers for over 15 years as a literacy specialist, and I’ve seen firsthand how kids connect with books when reading is something fun, something social, an experience that extends #beyondthebook. That said, I also realize that for most families, creating space and time for all of that is often easier said than done. That's why I’m excited to share some of my favorite go-to reading activities and tips to make the summer reading months extra fun!
