Visit your local library: Libraries offer books,audio tapes, videos, and DVDs that can be borrowed for free!

*Make fun reading choices: Summer is a great time to explore new authors and illustrators. Check Reading Rockets' Books and Authors section for books by theme. Read the reviews together and have your child choose his or her ownbooks.

*Bring along a book: Whenever you leave the house, bring a book with you. Kids can find time to read at the beach, at thepark, in the car, on the subway, or waiting in line.

*Reward reading progress: Add a seashell or a stone to a bucket each time your child readsand shares a book. When you've filled it up, do a fun summer activity like making a nice, cool milkshake together!
