I’ve kept a log of every book I’ve read I’ve read for the past several years. I know, #nerdalert.
But I love tracking the books I read because it gives me a sense of accomplishment. And I love seeing everything I’ve read at the end of the year.
And you know what?
Kids are the same.
During the school year, when we keep logs of the books my kids read, they get a real jolt of satisfaction seeing their growing list of books.
Tracking their books actually encourages them to read more. And who doesn’t want that!?!
So if you want to encourage your kids to read this summer, you can download thus cute free printable summer reading log for kids.

FREE PRINTABLE SUMMER READING LOG FOR KIDS
This summer reading log PDF is perfect for elementary schoolers or middle schoolers. Shoot, you could also use it for a high schooler if they’re not too cool for the fun graphics.
(Honestly, I would use this reading log for myself.)
It has a place for:
- the date finished
- the book’s title
- how many pages in the book
- the kid’s rating of the book
I love the rating column because it encourages kids to find out what kinds of books they really love so they can pursue specific authors or genres.

TIPS TO ENCOURAGE READING THIS SUMMER
1. Be a reading role model: If kids see you reading, they’ll be more likely to follow your example.
2. Variety & Choice: Providing lots of reading options and then allowing your child the choice of what to read will promote a reading habit.
3. Hit up your local library: Add weekly trips to your library to get out of the house for a fun outing and refresh your supply of books for free.
4. Build reading into your daily summer routine: Schedule time each day for quiet time for everyone to read (or be read to). Not only will this get your kids (and you) reading this summer, but it will start to build a reading habit in your home.
5. Track reading: This is where the summer reading log come in!
6. Get Cozy: Make sure there are comfy places for kids to read. Personally, we got CordaRoy bean bags for each one of our kids and it’s been one of the best ways to get our kids reading. They all love to snuggle up in their bean bag and read for ages.
