2020 Reading Challenge for Kids and Teens

$4.99 (Excl. Tax)

***The 2021 challenge will post in December. Per usual, it will be free from its launch date until the end of January. You are welcome to purchase this version, or you can wait for the new version in December!***

 

Our 2020 Reading Challenge is better than ever: easier to use, more flexible categories, more free choice options. And, you’ll see some new categories related to an election year AND an Olympics year. Encourage your children and teens to diversify their reading with one of four challenge levels: 13 books/year, 25 books/year, 50 books/year, or 100 books/year.

ALL BOOKS COUNT: graphic novels, picture books, easy readers, read alouds, audiobooks, short books, long books, old books, new books, …. Our one rule is “no double dipping!”

At Redeemed Reader, we know Christian parents and educators struggle to find quality new books. And we know that your kids and teens are often reading faster than you can keep up–or reading only one kind of book.

We’re reading ahead for you, so that you can confidently choose books for your children and teens. We’ve included links back to our site in the reading challenge although you’re certainly not limited to our suggestions.

***The 2021 challenge will post in December. Per usual, it will be free from its launch date until the end of January. You are welcome to purchase this version, or you can wait for the new version in December!***

At Redeemed Reader, we know Christian parents and educators struggle to find quality new books. And we know that your kids and teens are often reading faster than you can keep up–or reading only one kind of book.

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?

  • Your 13 year old only wants to read fantasy. If you see another book cover with a dragon on it, you’re going to rip up her library card.
  • You see all the reading challenge posts popping up, but your kids are all pre-readers. Picture books are your life right now… so a reading challenge will have to wait.
  • Your second grade class is doing so well with their new reading skills! But how to encourage them to build that critical reading fluency across a wide variety of books?
  • You want to challenge your middle school students to read broadly, but how to go about that?
  • Your teenager is into sports. Why read?
  • Your family loves audiobooks, but you’d like to try to diversify your read alouds a bit. Historical fiction is great, but what about listening to a nonfiction title?

If any of those resonate with you, you need the Redeemed Reader annual reading challenge!

The 2020 Reading Challenge

Our 2020 Reading Challenge is better than ever: easier to use, more flexible categories, more free choice options. And, you’ll see some new categories related to an election year AND an Olympics year.

ALL BOOKS COUNT: graphic novels, picture books, easy readers, read alouds, audiobooks, short books, long books, old books, new books, …. Our one rule is “no double dipping!”

We’re reading ahead for you, so that you can confidently choose books for your children and teens. We’ve included links back to our site in the reading challenge although you’re certainly not limited to our suggestions.

We have four levels:

  • Bakers Dozen Level (13 books/year)
  • Quarterback Level (25 books/year)
  • Weekly Reader Level (50 books/year)
  • Grand Slam Level (100 books/year)

The Reading Challenge pdf includes trackers for each level, links to recommended books on Redeemed Reader, and a bonus Read Aloud challenge for families or classrooms.

All purchases come with a free downloadable poster and flyer, designed by Caroline Aukeman of Christ’s Covenant Church.

Please note: our reading challenge reflects our Christian beliefs. You will find specifically Christian books required at each level (such as a book of the Bible or a book about a missionary). If you do not share our Christian beliefs but would still like to use the reading challenge, you are welcome to substitute categories as needed.
