Why are we running a summer reading campaign?

Many children lose as much as 2 – 3 months of reading and spelling skills over the summer while they are not in school. Over the course of elementary school, this can put them the equivalent of nearly 3 grade levels behind their peers. Read more statistics on the effects of summer learning loss and why it's important that we fight it.
