Keep Your Kids Reading All Summer - Avoid the Summer Slide
Studies show that children who continue to read through the summer can actually continue to improve their reading ability. Children who do not read during the summer break can LOSE up to 2 months over the vacation. You do the math. If your child reads every summer and gains 2 months each vacation, and your neighbor does not read and loses 2 months every year, what happens in 3 years, 5 years, 8 years? The months add up. And those children who do not read over summer vacations will fall behind. Check your local library for summer reading programs. They help keep reading fun, provide incentives, and keep children motivated.
