Prevent summer slide

As summer reading programs kick off, we’ll see more co-operative programs between libraries, school districts, zoos, aquariums and museums than ever before.

The softening of borders between these former “silos” is welcomed by educators who seek to reduce the impact of “summer slide,” or the loss of academic skills during the seasonal recess.

Look for programs in which literacy, parenting, nature, health and science all crossover to keep kids mentally and physically active.
