Parents and caregivers, why should kids and teens read during the summer? It is summer break, after all; kids deserve a break, right? Well, of course they do. Just be sure reading is part of fun time. After all, children who don’t read over the summer lose 3 months of reading comprehension. That loss is accumulative – by the end of 6th grade these kids are 2 school years behind their peers. Don’t let kids lose reading skills this summer. Reading as few as 4 books keeps kids at their current reading levels.
Kids, you can read ANYTHING to be eligible for prizes.
