Here’s a quiz to see if you’re supporting summer reading.
Give yourself five points for something you usually do, zero for something you never do—or any score in between.
___1. My child is enrolled in our library’s summer reading program.
___2. We read aloud and listen to books on tape.
___3. We have “DEAR” time over the summer. We all “Drop Everything And Read.”
___4. We have a variety of reading material—comic books, magazines and books.
___5. We discuss books as a family. We share our thoughts about books we’re reading.
How did you score?
Above 20 is excellent. A score of 15 to 19 is average. If your score is lower, choose some of these tips and try them this summer.
