Why Summer Reading?

Students who don't read over summer vacation can lose months of academic progress. This summer learning loss—often referred to as summer slide—is cumulative.

Fortunately, research points to a solution. A personalized summer reading experience, one that allows kids to choose books they WANT to read, can spark a love of reading and eliminate—or even reverse—summer reading loss.

Through Booksource's Summer Reading Program, your child has received a selection of exciting titles to read this summer. Make time to talk about these books together. We've created everything you need to get started!

Summer Reading Logs and Activity Sheets

It's easy to track time spent reading and get kids thinking a little more about the books they've read. Just download and print the Reading Log and Activity Sheets (choose the one you like best—or use both!) below.
