Weekly reading logs both with and without a space for a parent signature are included to cater to various preferences, as well as a versatile printable reading log suitable for monthly or yearly use.

Monthly Reading Logs
Two versions of monthly reading logs are included for students to record how many books they’ve read. The color-to-record version allows children to color in one book for each book they read, whilst the write-to-record version allows kids to write out their list. Encourage children to read more by offering them prizes such as a new book of their choice as a reward for coloring in all the books on their reading log by the end of the month and meeting their reading goals.
These reading log coloring pages are also great for toddlers and preschool students to give them a visual clue as to how many books they have read in amonth. They would also be great for preschool summer reading logs.
Daily Reading Logs and Reading Log Bookmarks
Another format included are reading log templates – one for each day of the week, and reading log bookmarks. It contains information such as the title of the book, the number of pages read, and a space to write out a short summary of the story. Reading log bookmarks are handy bookmarks for students to record the page they started reading at, the page that they stopped reading at, and how long they have read for.
Book Review Templates
Lastly, there are three Book Review templates for students to reflect on their reading. On these pages, children can fill in the title and author of the book they have been reading, as well as rate the book by coloring in the number of stars they give it. There are also spaces for children to write their favorite characters, outline the setting of the book, write out a summary, and draw their favorite scene!
The book review template gives children practice in learning how to review a book which is great for reading assignments.
A good way to store these pages is in a binder already in sheet protectors so they can be easily removed when needed. In my home, we print out each of these pages and bind them into a folder for easy access and storage.
