The summer holidays are almost upon us and it is that time of year when parents are planning activities, days outs and more to keep their children occupied. But one thing that can often be overlooked is reading. There are so many benefits for children to continue reading throughout the summer holidays:
Helps Maintain Learning
6 weeks summer holidays is a long time and reading helps to keep the brain active. Fiction books are great for the children that enjoy reading, but for those that may be reluctant readers activity books are a great alternative. While reading, children can be doing fun activities such as puzzles, spot the difference. These Stem related activity activity books are great to help with learning and keeping the children occupied.
Helps with creativity and imagination
Fiction books are great for children to immerse themselves into different situations – a good book will make you feel like you are part of the experience. A series of books can be great for this as they can get the child involved and want to read more. Books2Door have a wide range of boxsets to suit all age ranges and different tastes. We recently received the Alex Rider series which both girls are looking forward to reading in the summer.
Can help with routines
Although it is the summer holidays, I still prefer to keep some kind of routine. And reading can assist with this, for example making sure you read before bed. Or some quiet time in the afternoon after lunch.
