According to an article from the website, education.com, students who read consistently over the summer are less likely to experience the “summer slide” and are more prepared for a successful school year in the fall. In fact, studies have shown that reading just six age-appropriate books over the summer can maintain a child’s reading level from the previous school year.
The most important thing when it comes to summer reading is consistency, so find what works best for you to keep your kids “in the books” for at least a few hours each week. You’ll be glad you did when school starts up again!
