Encourage Kids to Read This Summer
The U.S. Department of Education launched their annual summer campaign, Let’s Read, Let’s Move. The campaign encourages children to participate in summer reading programs and parents to read to their children more often.
Through summer reading, kids may discover a favorite author that sparks a lifelong love of reading. Summer reading can also prevent learning loss and help prepare a child for the next academic year.
Check out a few reading resources for kids:
- Classic Books Online — Explore time-honored tales, available from the Library of Congress.
- Locate a Public Library — Find reading programs and borrow—rather than buy—books.
- Strong Minds Project — Volunteer to help kids read during the summer.
- Reading and Writing, Grades K-5 and Language Arts, Grades 6-8 — Find a variety of resources on Kids.gov.
