Why read over the summer?

The benefits to readers in a summer reading program include:

  •  encouragement that reading become a lifelong habit
  • reluctant readers can be drawn in by the activities
  • reading over the summer helps children keep their skills up
  • the program can generate interest in the library and books

And it being summer, the program can just be good fun and provide an opportunity for family time.

Below are summer reading programs that cost nothing and the children can enjoy over the summer.
