Keep Kids' Reading Skills Fresh this Summer n

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Keep kids’ reading skills fresh this summer. Studies show that kids who do not read over the summer vacation have a decline in reading skills. They lose the knowledge they worked so hard to acquire during the school year. Do not allow this to happen. The Public Library is the fun place to keep kids’ reading skills fresh.

The Public Library has programs especially for children. One is the summer reading program. Each summer the children register at their local library. They read one book of their choice each week. The kids receive a sticker for each book read. At the end of the summer, the kids receive a certificate. Best of all, the kids have read, at least, one book a week.

There is another program for younger children. It is the reading circle. Children meet at a designated time and hear a volunteer read books of interest to them. Many of the readers are master storytellers.

Parents of blind and physically handicapped kids, there are materials available. There are books with large print, sign language video cassettes and CD-ROMS. Some library branches have talking books and talking machines.

Even if the local library has no special programs, take your kids for books. There are many volumes on a variety of subjects. Remember there are children magazines, audio books, and computers. Please do not take kids to the library to play games. There are many web sites that have fun learning activities.

This summer, do not neglect the kids. Keep their reading skills fresh. Use the following lists of books as a guide to available books. Better yet, take and allow kids to explore the library collection on their own. Take a cue from the books they choose. Expand their home library with books of their interest.

A healthy body is as important as a healthy mind.
