I should probably let it be known that I am related to some very talented people. I try not to think about it too much, or else it gives me a little bit of a complex! My husband is one of ten children, so there are a lot of relatives on that side of the family, and one of them is my very creative sister-in-law, Sharleen.
A couple of weeks ago Sharleen posted the most adorable reading poster on her Instagram account. She made an engineer print of a bookshelf full of blank books. There are one hundred books in total to go along with her family’s Summer reading goals. Every time they read a book they write the tile on the spine of a book on the poster, and then they color the book. It’s an amazing visual reminder of their goal, plus it’s a family art project.
Sharleen actually sketched out the drawing and then sent it to Staples and had an engineer print made. She fit two bookshelves on one print; so for about ten dollars she has two Summer’s worth of fun!
Sharleen very generously shared the print with us, so that you can all print one off. Her only request is that, if you make share the chart on social media, you tag it with #vintagereadingchart so that she can see them!
Sharleen made her own hangers for the poster. You can see Amanda’s tutorial for making a poster hanger here.
To print your own reading chart, right click on the image to save, and then upload it to your local Staples (or whoever else makes engineer prints) or right click and open it in a new window, then save!
