Summer is a great opportunity for children to fall in love with reading again (or for the first time!) because they don’t have the pressure of school, tests and required reading. Even for homeschoolers who may have more flexibility during the year than traditional schoolers it is a change from the daily schedule (for those of us who take a summer break).
During these summer months children can pick out books that interest them and read for the pure enjoyment of it. Children will often read more and can gain a love and appreciation for books.
