Kids engaged in summer reading activities are better prepared for the new academic year, show improvement in spelling, writing style, vocabulary, and grammatical development. The number of books read during summer is consistently related to academic gains. Reading also offers opportunities to discover books that are not associated with classroom lessons; allowing kids to expand their horizons and discover new story genres.
