The ‘Great Book Delivery’ Helps Kids Read All Summer
One of every kid's summer challenges is Reading. When I was in school I remember thinking, "Ahhhhhh...Summer...No School...No Homework....No Reading!!! Little did I know that abandoning all aspects of "School related educational activities, such as reading especially, was a huge mistake.
Returning to school "Cold Turkey" without having used my brain at all during the summer months, caused me to go back to school with a lazy brain. Luckily my Mom wasn't having it, and neither was my school, and both required me to read "something" during the summer recces. My school had a list of suggested books and I think I remember having to read at least 3 books over the summer.
Well fast forward to now, 2017, where some teachers, staff, and the Principal at Prospect Elementary in Salamanca came up with a creative way to make sure kids get books to read for the summer. They call it the 'Great Book Delivery'!
