Summer Reading Programs

Summer is a great season that everybody awaits passionately for its arrival. Schools are on vacation during this period. Children take time to relax at home. However, indulging in excess relaxation and fun can lead to reading loss as research has shown. Fortunately, today there are many libraries that offer summer reading programs to children. There are many benefits that can be derived from these reading programs by children who attend them.


Research carried out at John Hopkins University shows that students experience learning and reading loss when they are not taking part in active education. Enrolling in reading programs is an excellent way of forestalling such reading loss. Therefore, parents should enroll their kids in summer reading programs. This will serve as a continuation of their academic pursuit. When they are enrolled in these programs, their vacation period will become useful to them. It will help them to avoid indulging in excessive frivolities associated with the summer.

Developing reading enthusiasm is a big problem that is facing most kids and even undergraduates today. Many students find it difficult to read when the schools are not in session. This is because they do not have the interest to read. Enrolling in reading programs will help students to develop good reading habits that will help them in life. While attending these reading programs children will have the opportunity of reading many books that interest them. By reading those books regularly they will form good reading habits without realizing it.

Comprehension is very crucial in every child’s education. At the early stage of their learning career, children internalize what they are taught. Recent research on the benefits of reading programs shows that children who enroll in these summer program learn quickly and do better in class than children who do not attend these programs. You will be helping your child greatly if you can enroll him or her in these reading programs.  It will help them to develop their ability to comprehend.



Reading is fun!
