Absolutely incredible packaging. I was pleasantly surprised when we opened the summer reading program package, as was my son! We read the included book some days together, but he read most days alone! I even would quiz him, this way I knew he was really reading, and he was! We are already finished our first book! Thank you, to The Good, and the Beautiful, and the Summer Reading Program, for this opportunity— for my son to utilize this program, and excel. He enjoyed the book, as did I, and he didn’t fuss over reading time! We both enjoyed the adorable little bookmarks, and the reading log was a super fun way to easily chart his reading, watch his progress, and see how long he spent thus far. He’s excelled quite a bit in time. Which I was super impressed by. One book? This kids reading level already increased in speed? This is wonderful! I wish I began sooner! I loved the little map included acting as a fantastic, interactive, way to boost his ability to WANT to move forward! This is an incredible program. For my son to spend his summer, busy with football conditioning, as well as beginning his young lifeguard camp, being the busy little bee he is, but then come home, and remember to read even just a little bit of his book, without a reminder after the first week, was a dream for me! Books are very special to me, and always have been. Getting my son to be interested hasn’t been an easy road, but this helped to make him take a leap into reading. (Without fussing over it!) For whatever reason, I won’t question it! Thank you again!

As a mom who struggled getting my kids to the finish line this past school year, I greatly appreciated this program! I struggled with my first grader this past year and it was such a relief to see her so excited about reading this summer. Beautifully done, as always, it made me excited right alongside my kids. There even arose opportunities to learn about the animals as they put the stickers on the woodland scene. As my girls were excited to pick their next animal sticker, they had tons of questions which led to many more open books. I do hope this becomes a yearly program as we have greatly enjoyed it!

We used to participate in the library summer reading programs when my kids were preschoolers. They loved picking their books and picking prizes. However, when my kids started reading, I didn’t love a lot of what they were picking out. I started only pre-ordering from the library for books I found on Charlotte Mason reading lists, but also shifted my focus to building our own living uplifting library. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Good and The Beautiful book list when it first came out. There were quite a few family favorites on the do not read list, including C.S. Lewis’s Narnia series.
However, years later after spending so much effort finding quality books, I just came across this summer reading program. I liked the idea of what it stands for, and our family took the pledge. We started picking books from this list, as well as others that meet the qualifications of our pledge. We’re a third of the way through the summer and my kids have loved loved loved reading … a lot more than normal. Even my almost 12 year-old thinks the stickers and decorating the forest scene with drawings is fun. And they’re excited about the family reward at the end that they got to pick. I hope TGATB offers this every year!!! Also, as a note, I’ve been on the fence about this company for many years, but these adorable cheap little handouts just helped me decide to order resources for several subjects for the coming school year as well as many books off the reading list. I love that you make literacy tools like this so affordable. And I love your mission overall. Thanks TGATB!!!!

This program really got my boys excited about reading. I highly recommend it! It is the first thing that I’ve ever used from The Good and the Beautiful, but I will definitely be looking at their other products in the future!

Why is The Good and the Beautiful promoting summer reading?

We are losing whole generations of children who are able to recognize or care about literature and learning that is good and beautiful. We are also facing generations of children who are flooded with books that model disrespect and low character. Our overarching mission is to help draw children and families to learning and books that are clean, promote high character, and create strong and faithful minds and hearts. There is so much joy to be found in rich, uplifting literature. Join us in our journey!
