This free printable summer reading log is the perfect way to help kids get organized and reach their summer reading goals!
During summer, we fill our days with tons of outside play; pool time, beach trips and playdates which are a welcome break, but it’s also important to schedule some time each day to slow down, and keep those reading skills sharp!
In our house, I’ve created a time of day that we call “sloth time”. It’s a 30-minute window where we all slow down, sloth style! No running, no playing, and no iPads or TV. The kids have two options: reading, or napping (they always choose reading). To keep track of all the books being read during this time, I’ve created this summer reading log.

We started this reading log to track all of the books being read during summer. My daughter’s school has a reading contest to see who can read the most books in each grade. The students keep track of all of the books read over summer, and turn in their list on the first day of school. Last summer, I kept a running list on my computer, but now that my daughter’s a 3rd grader, we think it’s important for her to be in-charge of tracking the books she completed on her own. Last year she won the contest for the incoming 2nd graders, so she’s already been busy filing up her reading log trying to defend her title. She’s pretty competitive when it comes to academics!
My daughter just got the whole Chronicles of Narnia series and has already started her journey through this magical literary world. I’d love to hear about what books your kiddos will be reading this summer, so please comment below!
