A March Reading Challenge for the Whole Family

Save or Share:

Get your family to dive into reading this month with a March reading challenge! Join my family and I as we break out of our reading ruts and have a little fun along the way.

The March 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!

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

reread a favorite
currently a NYT best seller
women’s history

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

March Reading Challenge Ideas

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.

March Reading Challenge: Selecting Books

The categories for the reading challenge this month are:

Reread a Favorite

Of course, every person will have their own favorites, but if you need to jog your memory about some of the top childhood favorites, then I have some inspiration for you:
