Summer reading can enhance vacation time on every level. Children’s summer reading programs are common, and for good reason: reading combats summer learning loss, expands academic skills, and provides entertainment for kids with a lot of free time.
And summer reading can enrich and transport adults, too. Reading is a great way to expand your mind, create connections at book clubs, or just unwind at the beach. It’s never too late to keep learning, whether it’s with a timeless classic like “To Kill a Mockingbird,” a social commentary like “The New Jim Crow,” or an exciting thriller like “Camino Island.”
