Recording every book your child reads in a reading log is a great way of motivating your child to read more.
Perhaps it is encouragement enough for your child just to fill in the log, and maybe also receive a sticker, after completing each book. You could use a reading log all year round, or introduce it just for the long summer vacation to avoid the "summer slide" when your child risks slipping behind in their reading if they don't keep practicing. Below you will find some practical tips on how to set up your reading log, how to use it to promote book discussions and also some ideas of possible rewards you could give your child to incentivise them further. It can be motivating to have a chart which you display prominently in your child's bedroom to remind them to keep reading, particularly for younger children. Older children may, however, prefer a notebook, particularly if they intend to write longer reviews of each book. Date started and date finished If you want to keep it simple you can just include the date finished. Genre For older children, think about recording the genre of the book, particularly if you are trying to encourage them to read more across different genres.
Rating Your child could give the book from one to five stars, for example, depending on how much they enjoyed it. Book cover image It could be a nice idea to print out a small image of the book cover from the internet and stick it onto the reading log, to provide a visual reminder of the books read. Reward Decide if you want to reward your child after they read a certain number of books, for example after ten books. While your child is filling in the reading log, and particularly while they are rating the book, you have an ideal opportunity to talk to them about what they liked and didn't like about the book. These are taken from Reading Together by Diane Frankenstein which suggests thought-provoking questions for over 100 books to help you get conversations started with your child about books. If you choose to reward your child after they read a certain number of books, agree on the reward together early on so that they know what they are working towards. My preference is not to reward my children with TV - time spent in front of the television is time away from books. If you are worried that your child may be so motivated by the reward that they are not reading the books properly or understanding them fully, you can try this little exercise.
Surprisingly, it is not that hard to tell what is going on even if you haven't read the book.

MoehringerDidn’t have high hopes for this one when I started it but by the time I ended it, it had become a favorite.
I’ve already read The Hunger Games and the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so scratch those ?? I’m always look for new suggestions and I love memoirs! Researchers have proven the 20 minutes a day will enhance children’s knowledge all around. The writing is wild and fantastic, the characters so out of the ordinary you can’t help but be enveloped by them. Allow your children the opportunity to explore the aisles, looking at the different colors of books, glancing at the titles that interest them you can even read a brief overview of the book to see if this book is going to be good (for you and your child).
Sittenfeld is one of those authors who can just climb into your mind make you think she’s read your diary. It’s the beautiful kind of writing that articulates emotions and circumstances in such prolific ways that you are mesmerized. Perhaps I appreciated this book because the author was a journalist and writing this memoir was something he’d been trying to do for years.

I was skeptical of Weiner, just because sometimes chick lit is so sickeningly syrupy that I can’t even get through it. This journey would be a dream to me and at least once a week, I think about eating the pizza that Liz ate in Italy. Remember when she writes about eating at the best pizza place in Naples, which has the best pizza in Italy, which has the best pizza of any country — meaning she was eating literally the best pizza in the entire world? I’m seeing trends here in this list, loving books that are about writers and such is the case. But it’s also about finding out who you are beneath the facade and triumphing in your own despite all the crap. In a different way, this book showed me I wasn’t alone in my inadequacies, fears and misunderstandings about my body, my mind, my food, my failures.
In this book, Cannie is a journalist and she’s lovable precisely because she’s imperfect!
There are pages and paragraphs in this book that describe me better than I could ever describe myself. Despite reading the book the came of the whole story, he writes in a way that makes you wonder if the book will ever actually happen. While some of Liz’s experiences are little too new agey or whatever for me, I enjoy her writing style and personality.
After reading it, I had a real appreciate for the classic, old timey bars of America, the characters that inhabit them, and the way strangers become family. Summer Sisters by Judy BlumeI read this oh so long ago and have literally read it 4-5 times total. I enjoyed living the journey through her because well, I’ll probably never have a chance to just take a year off work and travel the world for personal fulfillment. But, I had to go with Poisonwood just because it’s so big and meaningful and beautiful.
It follows one missionary family through decades of turmoil in the troubled African country. I’m not sure this is one that everyone would like but hearty readers and lovers of Africa will fall in love.
