GREAT LEADERS!!

Parents:

 Please Encourage Your Child with Summer Reading!

The research is clear: children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term

effect.

Visit the Public Library -

Get to know the librarians in your community and what the library has to offer. Librarians will help your child locate books that match their interests. While you are there, check out a book for yourself!

Don't leave home without it -

Have your child bring along a book or magazine any time they have to wait, such as at a doctor's office. Always try to fit in reading!

Take control of the television -

It's difficult for reading to compete with TV and video games.

Encourage reading as a free-time, quiet time activity.
