Here’s a fun way to encourage children to read during the summer holidays!
BC Summer Reading Club is a free literacy program for children ages 5 to 14. All children and their families are invited to participate by visiting their local public library. Check with your local public library for the Summer Reading Club details in your community.
This year’s theme is Imagine the Possibilities! There are seven weekly sub-themes to explore. Each sub-theme has an accompanying book list, organized by age group (3-5, 6-8, 9-12):
Week 1: Step into the Pages! – Storytelling, role-playing, and history
Week 2: Inventions and Innovations – Science, inventions, and inventors
Week 3: Monsters and Make-Believe – Mythical beasts and imaginary creatures
Week 4: Imagination Creation – Art and creativity
Week 5: Imagine a World Where… – Making the world a better place, the future, and science fiction
Week 6: Reach for the Stars – Dreams, aspirations, and outer space
Week 7: Everyday Extraordinary – Exploring the world around you (e.g. oceans, rainforest, mountains, etc.)
Bonus: There’s a The Value of Summer Reading letter to parents available in multiple languages.
Visit your local public library to join the fun!
