Summer ReadingJune 11 - August 9, 2013
What comes to mind when you think about summer? Swimming? Summer camp? Barbecues? Music in the park? This year, why not make reading and sharing books part of your summer fun?
No matter what your reason for reading -- whether it's to learn new things, escape with a great story, or simply to relax and unwind -- you reap great benefits. Teachers and literacy experts agree that reading throughout the summer helps students retain skills learned during the school year. Most importantly, when parents and children enjoy summer reading together, children develop a love of books and reading that lasts a lifetime.
