Why Is Summer Reading Important?

Posted June 7th, 2016 by Mrs. Buzek

 Reading over the summer is incredibly important for students and their academic achievement.

Here’s why:

  • Children who don’t read over the summer experience summer learning loss. That’s right — kids don’t just feel like they’ve forgotten some of what they’ve learned — they actually do forget it. And the effect is cumulative. Kids who lose reading skills over the summer will be two years behind their classmates by the end of 6th grade. By joining the Schaumburg Library┬áSummer Reading Club, kids can prevent this from happening.
  • The Summer Reading Club encourages kids to read whatever they want, which helps instill a love of reading for recreation. Studies show that kids who read for fun often out-perform kids who don’t in school.
  • The Summer Reading Club and all of its associated activities are absolutely free, offering everyone safe, educational opportunities throughout the summer.
