Kids Summer Challenge
During the summer, help your child stay motivated to read and learn. Incorporate reading for just 20 minutes a day into your family’s routine to help ensure your child returns to school in the fall ready to learn! Summer is also a great time to show your child the joy of reading, helping them grow as life-long learners.
