With the end of the school year we know that you are making plans for your child’s summer vacation activities. Research has consistently documented the importance of summer reading. Students who read recreationally during the summer have success when the new school year begins. Most importantly, when parents and children enjoy summer reading together, children develop a love of books and reading that lasts a lifetime.
