Let her see YOU reading for fun.
Help her pick fun books to read on her own. It doesn't matter how many pictures and how few words - as long as she likes it, it's a perfect book for her.
Bring back bedtime stories. Pick a book a little above her reading level and read a chapter a night to her. Try old favorites like "The Secret Garden", "The Little Princess", "Charlotte's Web".
And I love ria7's idea of "I'll read a page, you read a page" reading time. What an awesome way to spend time together!

My daughter at that age love the American Girl book, most libraries have them. They are all about girls and they are learning about history too. There are also a set called HopscotchHill also by the american girl company but are easier to read.
Disney Fairies also has a set of books out about the different fairies.
I suggest taking her to the library and talk to someone in the children's department. They should be able to give you tons of suggestions. Plus they should have a summer reading program so there is prizes for reading.
