Research shows that children who do not continue reading through the summer can lose a month or more of progress made during the school year. By encouraging their children to read, parents are playing a critical role in achieving Florida’s goal of having every child reading at or above grade level.
Children can pledge to make summer reading a real-life adventure at 2014 Summer Literacy Adventure.
