Children’s Day, Book Day is often known as Día, meaning day for our daily commitment to celebrating all our children and to motivating them and their families to be readers, essential in our democracy. As part of their daily commitment, many of our Día partners share resources to promote summer reading to teachers, parents and children:
Summer Reading and Fluency: Tips for Parents, from Reading Rockets.
For teachers, AFT's Share My Lesson offers thousands of lesson plans to support summer reading assignments and reinforce the skills and strategies that students have developed during the school year.
First Book's A Simple Bag of Books Can Help Beat Summer Slide shows that giving kids a chance to choose books that interest them is especially powerful during the summer when they are out of school and at risk for summer slide.
ALSC's 2017 Summer Reading Lists are free downloads that libraries can make available to patrons.
