Soar With Reading This Summer

Reading has been a huge focus in my house this summer. After a school year of hard work, I couldn’t risk back tracking on my kindergartners fast track to reading stardom.

Soar With Reading!

Luckily there are several great summer reading programs out there. One in particular is  the national initiative from JetBlue and PBS KIDStaking place again this summer, designed to help place books in the hands of kids in need and keep kids reading all summer long.

Hurry now and go to the Soar With Reading site (or click straight through on the image to the right) and share your favorite childhood book. With every share, JetBlue will donate a book to a child in need in grant cities. (Orlando is included in this group!) On the site parents can also find tips and downloadable activities to keep kids inspired to read all summer long.
