The Children’s Staff is preparing for our summer reading program. The theme changes each year, but the decision to count time spent reading is constant.
The schools encourage all children to read for 15 minutes a day, every day in the summer. It is only a small amount of time, but many studies have shown that it is necessary in order to keep a child’s reading skills from slipping.
The website www.ReadAloud.org encourages families to make this commitment every day of the year. There are a number of cute posters and inspirational slogans to remind you of how important this time is to your child and to you.
