Five books is a key

Today marks the traditional halfway point of the summer, so has your child made good progress with his reading list?

Research shows that reading at least five books during the summer is one of the best ways to combat the seasonal slide in academic skills.

Many libraries and even school districts have expanded programming with incentives for reaching reading milestones. Winning an e-reader or sports tickets might be just the motivation reluctant readers need to dig into those five books. It’s worth checking with your local library or school.
