Help to motivate your little Pokemon fans to read with this handy reading log. Just colour in a Pokeball for every book they read, or for every 20 minutes they read for and reward them with a little treat for completing the sheet!
If you’re the parent of a primary school aged child you will probably be tasked with listening to them read each night. We love listening to our son read and we love reading to him too. We regard it as a special quiet time where we sit together and get transported to another world.
It’s not all sitting on a magic carpet happily listening to a child read; sometimes it’s a bit harder to get him to read, especially if he’s not interested in the books he’s been sent home with. In those situations we usually promise the reading of a favourite book once the less exciting school reading has been finished. That way we get the best of both worlds.
Our son is very motivated by rewards, it doesn’t have to be big; a sticker or 20p for his jar is very well received. He loves Pokemon so I devised this Pokemon reading log for him. If he reads for 20 minutes he gets to colour a Pokeball in. Or if he finishes a book within those 20 minutes he colours one in too.
Once he’s completed a sheet he gets a treat. Again it’s nothing huge; he might get to choose a Netflix film for us to watch with some popcorn, or he might get a trip out to his favourite local museum.
We’ve found that this Pokemon reading log really does help to motivate and encourage him to read. He’s obsessed with anything with Pokemon on, so this reading log is a real winner!

Pokemon is as popular as ever; with both big kids and little kids collecting cards, chasing down the characters and playing the games. I know the big thing at the moment is collecting and swapping the cards with friends at school. It is a fun, sociable activity for kids to get involved in. If you’ve got a Pokemon fan in the family, I’ve picked out some Pokemon themed presents which would delight any keen collector on Christmas Day!
Snuggle up with your own Pokemon plush toy. Made by Tomy, this officially licensed 8” plush features one of the most popular characters from the series – Popplio.

It’s the perfect gift for anyone starting out or for those who would like a 50 card boost to their collection and a handy tin to keep them in.This Pokemon Shining Legends Collector Chest Game is a treasure trove of Pokémon goodies!
