During the summer months, the challenge of keeping students reading sometimes increases. Research has shown that students who do not read consistently over the summer can lose momentum in maintaining the progress they made during the school year; this phenomenon is known as the “summer slide.”

To encourage children and families to read independently throughout the summer, MetaMetrics—an educational research group—offers the FREE, research-based tool “Find a Book” to help students create a personalized reading list and then locate those books at the nearest library or bookseller.
