It’s the SIXTH year of the Summer Reading challenge chart and I could not be more thrilled to share it with you!

This year’s was designed by Meagan Griffin Designs and I love how it all came together.

I always hold my breath a little when the designer sends over the first draft – what if it’s terrible? (this has only happened once, but it scarred me enough that I’m always nervous). When I opened this year’s summer reading challenge chart, my internet was TERRIBLE so it took literally 15 minutes to load and my heart was pounding the whole time.

Fortunately, Meagan DELIVERED and this year’s reading chart is an absolute home run!

I love the underwater theme and I love that this year’s reading challenges (20 in all) all have a little bubble so you can mark them off as you complete them. Plus, the seashells let you track your reading all summer long.

You can decide how you want to track it – you can color in every day that you read at all, every day that you read for a certain amount of time or color code based on different types of reading (read alouds, picture books, graphic novels, audiobooks, etc). It’s up to you what works best for your family and schedule!

And, as always, the summer reading challenge is always free! Just pop in your email address below, we’ll add you to our email lists and it’ll come right to your inbox, ready to print off.

I love hearing from teachers who print out a copy for all their students to take home as an end-of-year gift or families that pass them out to neighbors to kick off summer or pop them in their local Little Free Library. There are so many ways to use this free reading chart for kids!

You can print it at home, but I always think the most fun is doing an engineer print – it’s only a few dollars and having a big version is so fun. I have a whole rundown of how to order an engineer print here. Once you do it, you’ll never go back!

P.S. The five previous Summer Reading Logs for Kids are all still available for free here, if you’d like those ones instead!
