As the summer wears on and the kids become restless, it is important to find ways to keep them entertained, engaged, and using their minds. One of the best ways to go about this is by offering them plenty to read.While very young children require you to assist them during reading time, older children are much more independent, and while you may need to stand by to help with the occasional word or two, they can likely make it through an entire book on their own if you let them. The experience of finishing an entire chapter book or novel is a great self-confidence booster for children and can help lead them toward a life-long love of reading.
