I bought these for my 9 & 7 year old boys. Since they got their reading journals they have doubled their monthly reading. They love the idea of “tracking” their reading, rating the books, and coloring in the books. It’s so rewarding for them to finish a book and update their journal! My only suggestion is to make the journal slightly larger, the spaces on the tracker page where they write the title and author is really small so we are using abbreviations.
