Why summer reading?

https://www.ireadprogram.org/resources/prevent-summer-slide

Avoid the "Summer Slide"! 

You should try to find time to read each and every day. Research shows students who read during the summer improve or maintain their reading skills. Kids who don't read at all see their skills slip as much as an entire grade level (Heyns 1978). 

 What can we read?

  • Award winners, suggestions from teachers or friends
  • Magazines, newspapers, your favourite blog
  • Comic books, whatever you like! 

This Libguide includes suggestions only and books are not required reading. You'll find teacher and student recommendations, award winners and just great reads! 

It doesn’t really matter what you read or where you read – just be sure to read every day!
