Challenge: Read every day for at least 15 to 30 minutes.
reading loss occurs for most children when they are not in a formal learning environment or not engaged in any form of educational activities during the summer.
students can have up to a 2-3 month loss in reading ability over summer.
lower income students may suffer most due to lack of books in the home and transportation access to public libraries.
rural area students also lack easy access.
innovative partnering of schools, publishers, and public libraries has great promise for solving the summer reading loss dilemma.
