The Summer Slide

Experts will explain that to prevent summer slide children need to read at least six books over the summer. But unless a child is already a book lover, the thought of reading six books, for cover.

Still wondering how to make it happen? Here is a suggestion that has proven to be successful for years! (I could say centuries)

Join the Scarborough Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. This year our theme is ‘One World, Many Stories’. Kick-Off is Monday, June 20 at 6 pm with Slugger, the Portland Sea Dog’s mascot and Baxter, the Coon Cat from the Maine State Library. The Gym Dandies Children’s Circus will also be there.

Our noncompetitive Summer Reading Program is easy. We require no set number of books, pages, or Easy, peasy.

Another option is listening to an audio book. Record the titles on the Reading Log. We do have a greAnd, if you can’t find it on our shelves, you can always request books, both print and audio, through Minerva.

, we’ve made it simple for parents to help their children stop the dreaded Summer Slide.
