School’s out and summer is here! We shouldn't need to convince you how important it is to continue to read over the summer, but we will anyway!

The brain is a muscle and, just like any other muscle in the body, it needs regular exercise to keep it strong and healthy. "How does one exercise their brain?" you ask. Well, we have one simple solution: reading!

Aside from being mentally stimulating, reading also helps you expand your vocabulary, improves your memory, helps with focus and concentration, and reading for as little as six minutes a day can lower your stress by 68-percent. Not to mention it helps prevent the "summer slide" or tendency for students to lose some of the academic skills and knowledge they learned during the school year.

Read on to find out more about how your kids can participate in our 2021 reading program, which includes rewards along the way to encourage them to keep on reading!
