The U.S. Department of Education launched their annual summer campaign, Let’s Read, Let’s Move. The campaign encourages children to participate in summer reading programs and parents to read to their children more often.

Through summer reading, kids may discover a favorite author that sparks a lifelong love of reading. Summer reading can also prevent learning loss and help prepare a child for the next academic year.

Check out a few reading resources for kids:

These are great resources. I’ll only ask one question: What’s wrong with buying books?

Not to be Danny Downer, but if 1 in 4 kids are on Food Stamps, there probably isn’t money to buy books. Plus, within a week, every Borders in the US will probably be gone, so there goes another actual physical place to buy books. I do wonder if elementary schools still have those Scholastic catalogs where kids can order books though. I still have a boxed set of Lord of the Rings + The Hobbit that I ordered in fourth grade.
