We all want our kids to read over the summer, right? But how can make that summer reading both memorable and fun – a treasured childhood memory rather than another thing to do and check off our lists?

For today’s show, I talked to one of my very favorite people on the whole planet- Pam Barnhill.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • ideas for how to motivate your kids to read
  • how to motivate yourself to read aloud to them
  • and which books are best for summertime

Just wait till you hear some of the reading party ideas!
