Summer vacation signals a time for rest and relaxation, but make sure reading is still on your kids' "to do" lists over the break. That's because reading is not only fundamental-- it's fun. Encouraging your kids to read opens their imaginations and keeps them learning all through their "off" time. Take a stay-cation to your local library to get a hands-on experience with books. With our tech-savvy kids it's also a good idea to download electronic books on their tablets for easy reading on the go.
