You and your child are about to start a reading adventure!
If you are reading this, you probably love books. One of my favorite parts of finishing a good book is going over to Goodreads to log my annual progress and jot down a few thoughts about what I read. I think more critically about the book—and I ultimately learn more and enjoy it more—when I have to organize my thoughts enough to write a review.
Kids can benefit from that kind of critical and creative thinking, too.
We created this My Reading Adventures journal so your kids (and their adults) can remember everything you read together—what you loved, what you didn’t like as much and how you felt while you were reading.
This journal has enough entries for kids to log one book per week for an entire year. Kids can choose to write, draw or both. Whether your child is reading picture books or chapter books, the journal will help your child think more deeply about what they are reading and reflect on their thoughts and feelings.
Plus, we included some fun extras like book wish lists, extra drawing exercises and fill-in-the-blank stories.
Reading should be fun—not a chore. We hope the My Reading Adventures journal can be a place where your child feels free to express his or her creativity in many different ways. We also hope it will be an activity that children can share with the adults in their lives, making reading a core family activity in the new year.
