~ MMGM SUMMER READING FOR KIDS PART 2 ~

~ MARVELOUS MIDDLE-GRADE
MONDAY SUMMER READING
FOR KIDS FEATURE, PART TWO ~





Hello, All ~ I'm returning this week with a new set of links for resources for summer reading programs for children. Next week, I will present a wrap-up post, Post 3, which will include a link pack for some fun literacy activities and places to search for free books educators, parents/grandparents can download for their younger readers.

📘  -- The ALSC, Association for Library Service to Children, has a page on their website set up for 'Summer Reading and Learning for Children'. I was amazed to learn here that summer reading programs were developed in the 1890s to encourage children to read during their summer vacations and to develop the habit of visiting their local libraries. This page includes links to the following areas of interest:






📘  --  The Collaborative Summer Reading Program has a Summer Reading Program page with four areas of interest posted:
-- Library Summer Reading Programs: ALA Library Fact Sheet 17

-- New York State Library, The Importance of Summer Reading: Public Library Summer Reading Programs and Learning

 
-- Children’s Summer Library Use: 
Information compiled by Colorado’s Library Research Service which includes valuable data on summer library use by children from varying economic backgrounds.


-- Preventing Summer Reading Loss:
Article from Reading Rockets on preventing summer reading loss.


 📘  --  Goodreads has some book lists I think are worth mentioning here. 

📕📘 Please return here next week for another set of links designed to help your young readers stay actively-engaged mentally, educationally, and emotionally this summer! 📕📘

  4. Another valuable post for teens and parents. I looked over the Goodreads lists and was shocked to see I only recognized one or two from the top 100 picks. There are so many more new books out there. Have to bookmark the ones that intrigued me.

  5. Excellent resources once again. I've bookmarked the post and will be revisiting often. Our libraries are closed and the Children's Summer Reading program has been put on hold. This will help parents immensely.
