Summer learning loss erases gains made during the school year. The research is clear that children who don’t read or who aren’t read to during the summer can loose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect. To help combat this, we need to read with our children and read aloud to our children.
To encourage reading at home, keep reading materials throughout your home and cars. Put books for reading and books with activities at the kitchen table, beside the beds, in family rooms/living rooms/play rooms, in the car and even in the bathroom. Help children young and old choose books on topics that interest them. Usborne Books and More has a vast selection of non-fiction and fiction titles available. Look below for some of Katie Pack’s favorites. She even included several that are especially travel-friendly for your summer travel adventures!
