Summer Reading Log

i hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. i can't believe we're already into july. this summer is going by too fast for me. 
a couple weeks ago, i took my kids and signed them up for the summer reading program at our library. i wanted a way to keep track of all the books everyone was reading and whether or not they liked them. 

so i put together a summer reading log... complete with a very scientific rating system for the first page.

what you'll need:
  • composition notebook
  • adhesive
  • patterned paper (i used papers from the super cute lime twist collection at my mind's eye)
  • old raggedy ink pad (optional)
  • corner rounder (optional)
  • download (includes READ letters and rating system) or get a download with a blank rating system here
what you'll do:
  • arrange your papers the way you want them. use the cover to trace where you'll need to cut. 
  • trim down the letters, round the top corners and ink all of the edges.
  • adhere everything to the front cover.
  • adhere the rating system sheet to the inside cover. if you want, cover it with some patterned paper first. 


then purchase a sheet of gold star stickers. each time you add a new book to your reading log, add the correct number of stars next to each review.
