Free 2015 Summer Reading Programs
School is out and summer fun has begun. It’s important to remember during these summer months to spend at least a little time in academics. Most students loose a bit of what was learned during the past year in the summer months. One way to help your child retain what was learned and be better prepared for the upcoming school year is to participate in a summer reading program. Some free summer reading programs are listed below.
