R is for Reading Challenge
I am so thankful that all of my kids love to read books. I didn’t love reading books until I was about 12 years old, but from the time I first fell in love with books I never stopped. And it was a summer reading challenge program that first gave me a love for reading!
Today I’m sharing a great list of Free Summer Reading Programs along with some book lists and printables for kids.

Just remember, it’s important that moms and dad are selective when it comes to their kids reading materials. Be aware of what your kids are reading. And use your own judgement when it comes to these lists I’m sharing. I have not personally approved every book!
