If you have kids, you know how hard it is to compete with electronics, sports, playdates, activities, and everything else you have going on over the summer. Getting my son to actually sit for a half an hour and read can sometimes be a challenge, even though he loves to read. His current obsession is the Guys Reads series by Jon Scieszka.
With summer break starting soon, I thought one great way to keep kids engaged with reading is with a book club. Monthly subscription boxes feature different themes and activities each month so your child will look forward to receiving their new box. I found ten different monthly book clubs for kids that range in age from birth to young adult, so there is a box for everyone!
