    Summer shouldn't mean taking a break from learning, especially reading.  Studies show that most students experience a loss of reading skills over the summer months, but children who continue to read actually gain skills. Efforts should be made during the summer to help children sustain reading skills, practice reading, and read for enjoyment.  Taking the time to read with your child can help you evaluate your child's reading skills. Educators consider summer reading very important in developing life-long reading habits, in maintaining literacy skills, and in promoting reading for pleasure.  Studies have repeatedly shown that children who continue to read during the summer months perform better when school resumes in the fall.  Research has also shown that when parents are actively involved in learning at home, their children become more successful in and out of school.
