Has your child finished assigned summer reading?
The last week of July is often the panic point for students who have one or more books left to read before school starts. Unfortunately, too many kids are turning down some great reading by using the abbreviation, tl; dr, or “too long, didn’t read.”
Encourage your child to experience the joy of losing himself in a longer book. Share a book you loved when you were your child’s age. Or read aloud before bedtime, even if he’s an independent reader.
Parents who share their love of reading might never hear their child decline a book by saying, “tl; dr.”
