Keep Kids Reading All Summer Long
ALSC's Summer Reading List
Reading can be one of the many fun activities children fill their summer time with. Research has shown it is also much more! Children who participate in public library summer reading programs not only avoid the “summer slide” in learning, but also score higher on reading achievement tests than those who do not participate. The books on this list come highly recommended by kid readers from all over the country and may also be available in ebook, audio book, braille, and large print formats. This summer, encourage your child to participate in the summer programs happening at your library. Here is the link to view a variety of great reads for any aged student: http://www.ala.org/alsc/2016-summer-reading-list
