Statistically, children can lose up to two months of reading skills throughout the summer – this regression is referred to as “Summer Slide”. The Children’s Summer Reading Program is designed to incentivize reading for all children, from newborn through elementary school. Children can earn prizes throughout the summer by reading, either independently or with their caregiver AND by completing a variety of activities, designed to enforce literacy skills and focus on exploratory learning and play.
At sign up participants will receive their reading log (including instructions) and a bookmark.
