Put reading first,
with 15 minutes a day spent reading or being read to this summer:

  1. Sign up the whole family for the summer reading program offered by your local public library.
  2. Visit your local library again and again this summer. Ask your librarian for suggestions of great books to read yourself or to your young child. 
  3. Set a goal of reading at least 15 minutes every day. For very young children and struggling readers, that can be spread out through the day. 
  4. Make reading fun all summer long!
