Summer Reading Success

Cartoon image of child running toward booksThe average child reads for only 6 HOURS over summer vacation. That’s only 4 minutes and 30 seconds a day, the time it takes to watch “Gangnam Style” or microwave a frozen chicken finger! These 4 tips will help students avoid the summer reading slide:

  1. Provide Access to Summer Books: By spending approximately $40 to $50 per year on summer books for each child, schools can begin to alleviate the summer reading achievement gap.
  2. Prioritize Student Choice: Motivate students to spend more time reading by letting them self-select summer reading books based on their personal interests—topics THEY find fascinating.
  3. Foster Engagement at Home: Parents and guardians can encourage kids to read more by discussing the titles they’re reading together. Plan fun title-related activities too!
  4. Offer High-Interest Titles: Some of the most popular summer reads for kids include pop culture titles, animal and habitat books, humor, and popular series.
