 Summer Reading Makes a Difference

     Research shows that many children experience what is often called "summer slide." When students are not in school, they are exposed to fewer educational opportunities and, as a result, lose some of the gains made in school during the year. You can prevent this from happening by reading throughout the summer.

 Tips for Parents


Donʼt rule out comic books and magazines. Allow your child the freedom to break up his/her book reading with a shorter "read."

•Help your child find a book on a subject that interests him/her. Visit the local library. The librarian is a wonderful resource and will be able to point out books of interest. 

•Make sure that you are reading during the summer. Children need to see that reading is a lifelong activity even his/her parents enjoy.

•Get a second copy of your childʼs book and read along with him/her. This way you can discuss the book together. You might also take turns reading aloud to each other.
