Summer Exploration For Kids With The TD Summer Reading Club 

Summer Exploration For Kids With The TD Summer Reading Club. Every since I was a young kid I always had an obsession with reading. You would often find me with my face in a book, careful not to trip over my own feet and I walked down the street. Every summer I would look forward to the end of the school year because that meant I would be on the first plane to the big apple to spend the summer with my grand parents. You see my Grandma would spoil me with just about every book in the book store during the summer.

I love reading it’s the one activity where you can be who you want to me. So if you wanted to be that superhero in the book you’re reading you ABSOLUTELY can! Now that I have children of my own I encourage them to read quite a bit. I will admit because I love reading so much I do expect that they feel the same way too. I always explain to my kids that they can learn so much from reading. It’s inspirational, it allows them to explore their ideas and shape their identities as well. In addition to that reading is also a fun way to use their imagination which can lead to opening other doors for them academically. The TD Summer Reading Club allows kids to have the opportunity to read all summer long my connecting families with books for the kids to have the chance to explore the incredible ability to love reading.

With Canada celebrating 150 years, the TD Summer Reading club invites kids to visit libraries across Canada to open up a book to see different views, interesting characters and much more. The TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages. The program is offered at 2000 public libraries across the country and it’s never too late to participate. What I love about this amazing program is that my kids can take part in this anywhere that means at a library or in the comfort of home. Some key points the kids are about to do in the club is 

  • find great books to read
  • track their reading
  • read books online
  • collect stickers
  • write stories and review on the books read

Which is my favourite of all because I am able to see exactly what the kids are retaining while reading. The TD Summer Reading Club has a Top 10 Recommended Reads that I will leave below for you and the kids to enjoy. TOP READS

How do you plan to incorporate reading into your summer this year? Let me know in the comments below

Now that you know how important reading is to me, I will be giving away one lucky family a chance to win the top 10 recommended reads I mentioned above. This giveaway is open to CANADIANS with the exclusion of Quebec. All you have to do is follow the contest entry rules below.

    My kiddos and I completed multiple summer reading programs at our local libraries. I did one program. My kids each completed four!

    It’s been really easy to incorporate reading this summer — my kids are both in the TD Summer Reading Club and love tracking how well they’re doing in the booklet provided. (Winning!) We walk up to the library at least once a week to stock up on new books. It’s just part of our regular routine.

    We take some time to read each evening before the kids go to bed. We also love to vosot the library to keep everyone interested in new books.

    This sounds like a great reading club for kids! Way back when our summer reading lists were so boring, but if you add some fun books, I bet kids would love it!

    We visit the library regularly and my kids pick their own books. If they choose them, they’re more likely to read them!

    I always just like to read for 30 min before bed every night.

    I have always been an avid reader. My only wish was to see any of my children pick up the habit. Unfortunately, they did not. anyway, I am always on the look out for books to read/to give as gifts. If my kids were still young, I would have encouraged them to do some reading over the summer.

    Since we usually road trip, I make sure the kids have ample reading supplies for the drive.
