5 Free Reading Log Printables For All Ages
These free reading log printables are a great way to encourage and reward reading.
Book trackers and reading logs are not only a great way for your kids to read more, but they are also great to add to a homeschool portfolio. Or if you are a teacher feel free to use these in your classroom.
Or if you don’t homeschool I can assure you that the kid’s teachers would also appreciate this. You never know you may start a trend!
These printable reading logs can be used for any age, including us adults. It’s a great way to visualize how many books we have actually read in a year/month.
Why not also download our free book report template and our compare and contrast movie and book template. These book printables are aimed at upper elementary and middle school-aged children. If you are looking for younger kids you will love our free book report for 3rd grade students.

How to use a printable reading log for kids
Print out the reading log printables below, it will print out on 5 pages. Make sure to check the printer settings. Either print them all out or just print out the ones you want to use.
You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our homeschool printables , they always look better on cardstock.
These reading logs and book trackers are a great way to incentivize reading.
When the page or shelf, or row is colored in treat the kids to a new book! Honestly, it’s a win-win!
The first one is the reading tracker.
This consists of 2 piles of books adding up to 30 in total.
This should be used with sheet 5 but doesn’t need to be if you are only using it to see how many books have been read.
Bookshelf Reading Log
The second reading log is probably my favorite. Color in the books on the bookshelf when you have completed each book.
I like to use this one too, as one of my New Years’ resolutions is to read a book a month, so this is a great way to see if I am on track.
Book Review Printable
The book review printable is a great way to read a book and then rank them out of 5. As you can see my son didn’t rank the first 5 books he read below a 4 star.
There is an option to add a drawing to the book, but as my son doesn’t like to draw freehand he has just colored the spine of the book.
Book Tracker Printable
The next printable is the book tracker for younger kids. Color each book and count how many books they have read in a month, or over the summer holidays.
Why not also play our summer reading book bingo challenge?
Reading Logs – Book Titles
The last page is the list of book titles, we like to incorporate this one with all of the printables as we homeschool, and it will be added to the portfolio.
But this doesn’t need to be printed if you don’t need to log your books.
If you are looking for a digital reading log we really love this one for both adults and kids.
