Summer Reading Game FAQs
Why read over the summer?
Kids who don't read over the summer lose skills which puts them at a disadvantage when school starts back up again. Prevent this summer learning loss by participating in the summer reading program, by encouraging children to read 20 minutes every day and by modeling your own reading behavior. Reading isn't homework! Make it fun! Read what you want!
What if I'm not a kid?
The summer reading game is for ALL ages! Join us. Read for you. Read to entertain yourself, educate yourself, and to help you get where you want to be. Need a place to start? Visit our Books page.
Can my child use the gameboard even if we have access to a computer?
Yes! Younger children will enjoy following along with the paper gameboard. We recommend hanging them on the refrigerator or some other visible place so that kids stay excited about reaching their goal. Please see above for links to our printable gameboard.
What are the beginning and end dates for the summer reading game?
The game runs from June 1 through August 1, 2020.
