Did you know ... ?
Daily reading is brain exercise! Summer reading is critical to a child's and teen's ability to retain information learned the previous year, as well as grow in knowledge and critical thinking skills for the upcoming year. Summer reading is great for adults, too! Reading reveals new ideas and possibilities, improves writing and speech, and enhances professional skills. Plus, when children and teens see adults read, they are more likely to want to read themselves.
