Summer Reading Resources!


Summer Reading

Research has shown children can lose up to three months of academic progress during the summer months. Reading is fundamental!  To help prevent learning loss, also known as the “Summer Slide,” reading a minimum of four books over the summer can help keep young minds stimulated and engaged. There are some terrific reading programs available to parents throughout the Puget Sound region. The King County Library has a program called Dig Into READING.  Beginning June 1, 2013, children can log on to the library website to keep track of their summer reading hours. Once a child has achieved 500 minutes of reading they are eligible to receive a Halfway Prize. At the end of the summer, after completing a 1,000 hours of reading, they will receive a Final Prize. All elementary finishers will entered into a drawing for a Sony Reader. There will be one Reader given away at each library. For more information click here:

Another great resource to find books for your child is the website. This website has a breakdown of recommended books for children by age group.  According to American author James Patterson, “Without reading, kids lose an average of one to three months of achievement over the summer. By the end of 6th grade, children who do not read over the summer are as much as two years behind other kids who do.  Moms and Dads… getting our kids into reading this summer is our job.”
