This summer Scholastic is partnering up with Energizer to really make reading come alive with their Power Up & Read campaign. Any of you that have followed me for any period of time knows how much my whole family reads and summer is a time when we continue to do this, sometimes even more-so.
This is especially true as I know that as a parent I do not want to have my kids lose any ground between the end of one school year and the next.
With J-Mom being a librarian, we are always looking for a good book, and the kids are already making lists for the books that they are hoping to read throughout the summer. SOme of the ones on my eldests’ list include Harry Potter & Percy Jackson series’ of books. My youngest is liking Meg Mackintosh and Geronimo Stilton books lately so I know that she will voraciously be reading those among others.
Reading is so fundamental to academic, personal and professional success in general and with that in mind, as a parent, I feel so strongly that all kids should be provided with the structure to read on a daily basis, and this is what we do throughout the year, both in and outside of the school year!
I highly encourage all parents to Power Up & Read with their kids this summer and have some fun getting lost in a great book!
