Help Arizona Put Reading First! Read 20 minutes everyday this summer.
5 Things you can do to increase summer reading:
- Sign up the whole family for the library’s Fizz, Boom, Read! summer reading program at Chandler Public Library.
- Ask your librarian for suggestions of great books to read with your child.
- Use the “Find a Book” tool at http://readonarizona.org to find books that match a developing reader’s reading level.
- Set a goal of reading 20 minutes everyday. For very young children and struggling readers, the 20 minutes can be spread throughout the day.
- Make reading fun.
