Cute Monthly Reading Logs (Free Printables)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

Whether the goal is to read for 15 minutes every day or complete a new book by a given time frame, a reading log is the perfect way to help your child keep track of their progress.

Kids can use these sheets to write down how many minutes or pages read. Then, you can review and even initial the log if you’d like.

Some parents may also choose to use a reward system for a little extra motivation. But, of course, that’s totally optional.

If you like these templates, you may also want to grab a homework planner or a summer reading log for when school is out.

With these, you can track the date, name of the book, reading time, and the number of pages. Some also include two additional sections for writing a goal and a reward.

These do not have the extra column for parent signatures/initials. However, you can find the ones that do below.

These templates do have the extra parent signature column. They’re also available with and without the reward section.

January through December

These reading logs include the names of each month. All 12 months are available. Each month has its own color scheme.

What is the point of using a daily reading log?

For starters, it’s a tangible way to track your child’s reading progress and it can be quite motivating for kids no matter the grade level.

But there are a few not-so-obvious benefits too:

  • It keeps kids organized. They will have a plan that’s easy for them to follow (maybe a certain amount of pages or minutes per day is the goal). And that alone helps alleviate a lot of stress, especially when those larger book assignments start rolling in.
  • A reading log encourages consistency. Over time, reading will start to get easier and easier.
  • What’s so great about consistency? It will help them build those reading habits.
  • It’s also an excellent introduction to goal-setting in general.
