Every educator knows it. So do most parents. Summer reading is essential for kids! Reading experts note that most young readers suffer a reduction in reading skills during summer downtime. But that needn't be the case. Families can make reading a priority during the summer months, and children will learn that reading is not only for learning but for leisure.
