YEA! SUMMER IS HERE. Summer--a time of relaxation, departure from the routine, stop what you did in the winter. Wait--do we stop everything? Do you stop nourishing your body? Of course you don't.
Although summer is here, it is still important to nourish the brain. Research shows that children who read in the summer have a better school year when summer is over. But how do we get them to read in the summer? We spend the entire school year fussing at them--oops, I meant encouraging them to read. Can't we do something fun in the summer?
I would like to introduce you to my friend Cheryl Rogers. She has created a fun summer reading program for kids called Where's Zack.
Here is what she writes:
Where's Zack? A Summer Reading Quest kicks off today at my online magazine, New Christian Books. There will be free, wholesome family-oriented content focusing on the fictitious character Zack throughout June. Readers guess where he disappears while on his family's summer vacation and win free faith-building ebooks. Check it out!
