A June Reading Challenge for the Whole Family

Save or Share:

Get your family out of a reading rut this month with a June reading challenge! Join my family and me as we spice up our reading month and have a little fun along the way.

The June reading challenge is part of our Year-Long Reading Challenge for Families. The concept is simple – read up to 4 books each month, one from each of the four categories assigned to that month. There is no need to read a book from all four categories. You can choose to read from one category or choose them all!

June includes four fun categories. Pick one or complete them all:

published in the 1800’s
eye-catching cover
set in another country
science fiction

This June reading challenge is the perfect way for everyone in your family to find some new titles this month, so join the fun!

June Family Reading Challenge

Let’s get started. The first thing you should do is sign up for the challenge!

As soon as you do, you’ll receive your free printable bookmark and mini-poster. Laminate copies of the bookmark for everyone in the family and hang the mini-poster in a central location.

This will also put you on the list to receive your new challenge each month.

Family Reading Challenge

The year-long challenge is designed to work for your entire family. Print out the bookmarks for this month and let everyone decide how many categories they want to attempt. Remember you don’t have to complete them all!

Then begin the search for some titles that fit the bill for each category. Everyone can search for their own options, but you might also consider reading a title together. Then you can celebrate your reading success at the end of the month with a book celebration when you are done!

Parental Guidance

Remember that you know best when it comes to the books your family and your children read. While I have provided links to sources for book titles below, it is not a personal endorsement of every book on the lists. Common Sense Media is an excellent resource to use when you are making decisions about the right books for your family.
