Why Summer Reading?

Pleasure reading, reading that transports your imagination for 20 minutes or more either through story or your desire to learn information, is the best activity for keeping your brain in shape. Studies show that students who read the equivalent of 4 books keep their brain in shape for the fall. Students who do nothing with their brains over the summer may suffer from what's called "The Summer Slide" losing anywhere from 1-6 months of academic growth.

Don't Go MUSHY - Just Read 4! So grab your books, magazines, tablets and READ!
