School is finally out. Whether you are planning to travel or stay at home, make sure your kids have a summer reading plan and get in some bilingual reading.
We are looking forward for a laid back summer in Ecuador. The kids have a list of things that they want to do with abuelos and primos while enjoying the great outdoors. However, part of our action packed summer is to have some quiet time to enjoy books.
It is so important for children to keep reading during the summer to gain and keep skills learned in the school year. And what a best way to do with bilingual books. It’s a win-win situation!
Pick a book
Allow the kids to pick books that look interesting and fun! Encourage them to find something that they like. This can help keep reading inviting. Start by checking out our bilingual children’s books page and our suggested list of bilingual books for all ages.
Build up anticipation and have fun!
Summer reading shouldn’t feel like a school assignment so make sure the experience is fun and flexible. Remember that you are raising a lifelong reader not only a summer reader.
We have created some fabulous resources to add to your summer reading plan. Download them for free and have fun with them!
