The many benefits of reading are astounding: better grades, improved vocabulary, increased knowledge, etc. Reading is definitely worthwhile, but kids are often told what to read, when to read it, and sometimes even what to think about it, and this can make reading more of a chore than an enjoyable leisure activity. The Summer Reading Program is the perfect opportunity to put the FUN back in reading by giving kids the opportunity to read whatever they want and earn prizes for doing so! Read Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, or Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Read Dork Diaries, Day by Day with Justin Bieber, or Do People Really Have Tiny Insects Living in Their Eyelashes?. Read magazines. Read comic books. Read the back of your cereal box. Listen to an audiobook while you’re sprawled out by the pool. Just please, whatever you do this summer, READ!
