Here's a post that I originally wrote for my author blog:
I'm not a Pinterest fan, but here's a wonderful post by a fellow blogger at the Nerdy Book Club that gives super projects to make summer reading fun in your family.
Summertime is the perfect time to develop a love of reading in your kids. Kids can select their own reading material based on their own interests rather than what their teachers think they should be reading. They can also read at their own pace without meeting a deadline. If your family (or your child's camp bunk) go on an interesting outing, they can select books that dovetail nicely with the subject matter.
Many libraries have summer book clubs that your kids can join (including Beverly Hills and L.A. city libraries). Just go see the children's librarian for details at your neighborhood branch.
