As we kick into summer in the next week or so, why not help your elementary & middle school student make a commitment to read on his/her off months? Studies show that readers score better on tests and in general do better in class.
My own kids suffer the "I-don't-want-to-read-over-summertime" rant. But this summer that's going to change, even though my oldest will be starting high school in September. We're making a commitment to read every day.
My books make a great choice, but there are a lot of wonderful stories out there just waiting to be read.
What will your kids be reading?
