Benefits of Summer Reading Handout

Did you know that children who read over the summer do better in school?

Ways to help your child succeed at reading:

  • Get your child a library card at your local public library. It’s free!
  • Sign your child up for the library’s free summer reading club.
  • Encourage your child to read every day. When children read during the summer, they do better in school in the fall.
  • Let your children choose books that they like. When children enjoy reading, they read more and their skills improve.
  • Ask questions about the books your children are reading. Describing books in their own words helps them understand the stories better.
  • Read to your child or listen to audio books together. Talking about the stories you share will help your child learn new words and ideas.
  • Show you enjoy reading too. Read on your own in the language of your choice.
