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.
It is very important to my husband and I that our children have a nice break from school work in the summer, but what can you do to make sure they don’t regress in their reading skills? Well, one great way is to download FREE eBooks from Amazon.com! Amazon always has TONS of FREE Kids Books you can download.
