Reading a book series is a great way to keep your child or teen reading all summer long! They are more likely to jump to the next book to find out what happens and no more searching for a book to read next! There are many great book series to choose from, ask your local librarian to recommend one or fill out our Personalized Reading List survey to get some suggestions! https://bit.ly/PRLSurvey

When kids choose what they read, they will keep reading! Be open to your child's interests. If they want to read easy readers, comic books, or listen to audiobooks, that's ok! All of these forms have value and will help your child develop as a reader.

Keeping kids reading over the summer is important for preventing the summer slide. When kids choose their own books, they are more motivated to read, and with over 1.5 million books to choose from, we have plenty of options for them! http://www.delcolibraries.org/
