Happy Summer! This letter is to explain your child’s Summer Reading Assignment. Reading is essential in a child’s education. Research has shown that “Unless students read regularly during school breaks, they can fall behind 3 months in the reading achievement. Students who read several books throughout the summer are shown to maintain or increase their reading ability”.
Listed below are the 2 books I have selected for your child to read over the summer. The books are available at your local libraries, or for purchase at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, or Half.com.
Last Stop on Market Street By: Matt de la Pena
Dory Fantasmagory By: Abby Hanlon (This book is a series with lots of other books if your child really liked it!)
Thank you very much for your cooperation!
