Why is summer reading important? Children who don't read during the summer actually forget things they've learned and experience learning loss! By the end of 6th grade, a child could be 2 grade levels behind their peers. By reading over the summer, kids can avoid this summer slide and prevent learning loss!
Summer reading encourages kids read to whatever they want, and instills a love of reading for pleasure. Kids who read for fun will often out-perform and read more than those who don't read for fun.
Monroe Public Library provides summer reading for all ages (adults, too!) because we like to encourage and celebrate lifelong reading! Plus, when parents and kids participate in summer reading together, reading becomes a family activity.
