Reading is one of the most important skills a child can learn.  In order to maintain the progress a student makes during the school year, each child needs to read during the summer.  Here are several ways for your child to engage in reading over the summer and avoid the “summer slide.”

 

  1. Cumberland County Public Library and Information Center Summer Reading Program
  2. Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program
  3. Summer Reading Suggestions by Grade Level

Barnes & Noble is sponsoring a Summer Reading Program.  Your child should have a journal or you can find it online at Barnes & Noble Kids Summer Reading.  Have your child read 8 books and then write down their favorite part of each book on the back of the journal.  Take the completed journal to a Barnes & Noble store between May 16 and September 5.   Your child will be able to select a free book from the list on the journal.  It’s that easy and it’s FREE!
