Why FIVE? To prevent the “Summer Slide".
One of the simplest ways to prevent learning loss, also known as the “Summer Slide” is by reading.
- Research suggests that reading just five books over the summer allows kids to maintain, and possibly even strengthen, all the literacy skills they developed during the previous school year.
- Reading helps kids build their vocabulary, exposes them to new ideas, develops their imagination, and improves critical thinking.
- Just five books! For most kids, that’s only one book every two weeks.
