Reading during the summer months should be included in all "Summer Fun." Children need summer opportunities with books in order to retain the skills acquired during the school year. The suggestions below will help improve your child's reading during the summer and beyond:

      1. Books for Summer Success: Based on research, reading books during the summer months will keep struggling readers from regressing. Be sure to take advantage of Lexington's Cary Memorial Library Summer Reading     Program!
        2. Read Something Everyday: Take advantage of every opportunity to read to and with your child. Share the newspaper, magazines, guides, and other printed materials with your child. Make time at the end of each day for your child to read to you. 
      3. Keep Reading Aloud: Reading aloud to children highly influences children's progress and attitudes towards reading. Choose books that are at grade level and higher to help your child build vocabulary and increase listening comprehension.
