Summer Reads

Research shows that students lose much of the school year’s progress if they do not read over the summer months.

Brevard Public Schools is challenging our students to read as many books as they can read over the summer months. As a parent you can help your children avoid the typical "summer slide" of learning loss by providing access to reading materials and encouraging them to read frequently, both on their own and with a family member.

Just Take 20 for Families K-12

Download the materials you need to encourage your child to read outside the classroom. By utilizing the information found on this site, you’ll be equipped with the information you need to provide literacy support for your child's love of reading.



As parents, it’s important to promote and establish the value of lifelong literacy. Knowing where to start, however, can be a challenge. Studies show that it only takes 20 minutes per day to vastly improve a child’s reading ability. In one year, a child who reads 20 minutes a day is exposed to 1.8 million words. For children who only read 5 minutes per day outside of school, the number of words they’re exposed to drops to 282,000.
