Overstuffed: Summer Reading for Kids Overstuffed

Summer Reading for Kids

Reading is a big deal to me. Not only is it one of the more enjoyable activities in this world, it's so important for the learning and development of our children! I don't worry about their reading so much when they are in school, because they're reading a lot during the school year. But when the summer comes,  I want to make sure they are keeping it up to avoid summer learning loss and summer electronics overload.

Reading lists, incentives, and ideas to get your kids excited about reading this summer! #overstuffedlife
