I know, I know….we were shocked too!! That number is staggering considering there is SOOO much proven evidence that not reading over the summer is detrimental to a child’s learning process throughout the rest of the year.

The good news, however, is that 50% of the same group of children read between 1-5 books over their summer break!!!! eh-ehmmmm we will say that one more time…..

Scholastic reports that 50% of children ages 6-17 read between 1-5 books over the summer!
