How to put your Summer Reading Log Together
Step 1 | Download the Summer Reading Log printable using the clickable button below.
Step 2 | Print out the Summer Reading Log, it’s a 4 page PDF file. Front and back cover are in color, the rest of the pages are black and white. I recommend printing the front and back cover on cardstock and the rest of the pages on regular paper.
Step 3| Cut out the reading log pages using the trim lines provided.
Step 4 | Pre-purchase library card envelopes or use this library pocket template to create your own. You will need to stretch the template a bit to fit the reading log pages. If you don’t want to use a library card pocket, simply hold the reading log pages together with a binder clip or punch a hole in the upper left corner and secure with a binder ring.

I’ve also included a few more printables that coordinate with the Summer Reading log including a set some printable bookmarks featuring one of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes, customizable bookplates and some treat bag toppers.
All of these would be fun to include in a back to school kickoff party or to use in a book club. So many uses for these cute printables! Click the button below to download the bookmarks and bookplates.

My son is too little (2) to understand the concept of a reading log. But those are some great recommendations for books to read, thank you!
You’re so welcome Bekah! 🙂

With four kiddos from ages 5 to 12 I’m very excited to use this for this summer. I want my kids to track their reading a little more this summer, so this is perfect! I will just add in some prizes for certain accomplishments and we will be good to go!
Thanks a lot.
