FREE Summer Reading Programs 2013

summer reading
Reading is very important in our home as it is in most homes these days.  We look forward to our summer break but I dread the “summer slide”….the time when children lose part of what they learned in the previous year because of a long break from learning.  A great way to combat this problem is to keep your children reading through the summer.  There are tons of FREE programs that will keep your kids interested in reading.  OH YEAH!  I love FREE!  Here is my beginning list for 2013.  This will be a work in progress as many places have not yet released their reading programs for this year.  I was able to find quite a few already posted!  Enjoy and be sure to keep checking back for new programs.
