Many schools around the country will stay in session longer this year, due to winter’s weather, but summer is ahead of us. Perhaps the days of that favorite season aren’t as long and lazy as they used to be; children lead busy lives these days. Still, summer is the perfect time for young readers to discover the joys of reading – the season when nothing else will do but to take a journey to a strange land, spend the afternoon with a favorite character, or tackle the next book in a beloved series. Countless studies, too, show that children who read over the summer hiatus do better when they return to school. Skills can be lost during time away. What better way to stay in shape than through reading?
For all of May, ReaderkidZ will recommend new and old favorites. Books to keep your children enthralled and entertained and, best of all, fluid readers. Please stay with us while we build an exciting summer reading list for K-5 readers.
