“The research is clear that children who don't read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect.”
How can parents encourage reading over the summer:
· Regina Public Library: library programs, TD Summer Reading Program
· Online Resources: Tumblebooks or Overdrive (free on the Regina Public Library website), anyone with RAZ Kids account
· Garage sale books
· Have a Reading Challenge with friends and neighbours
· Pack a book in your backpack, sports bag or car
· Read different types of text (magazines, newspapers, e-books, novels, recipes, informational books, etc)
Remember to READ, READ, READ!!
