OLA creates summer reading toolkit for parents

June 22, 2017 at 8:00 am 1 comment

From the OLA website: “Are you looking for a way to keep your child reading this summer? Hundreds of children fall victim to the summer slide: when students lose academic development and achievement gains over the summer months. Contrary to popular belief, 76% of kids enjoy reading books over the summer (Scholastic Canada, 2017). This Summer Reading Toolkit for Parents was designed by the Ontario Library Association to help parents help their kids through the summer months. It was made possible by a generous Parents Reaching Out (PRO) grant from Ontario’s Ministry of Education.”

The downloadable toolkit : “Use this Toolkit to discover engaging summer reading programs and keep your child reading this summer. We’ve centralized information and suggestions for summer reading opportunities. We’ve cultivated the best reading programs available, listed reading festivals across Ontario, and provided alternative reading suggestions and tips for reluctant readers.”

Plus there is quiz: “Not every child enjoys reading fiction. Some are attracted by the animation of graphic novels, and others by the images of teen icons in magazines. The Summer Reading Quiz will take less than ten minutes of your time. It will ask you questions about your child and their reading preferences, and will determine the best summer reading program or curated reading list for your child.”

Check it out! Rowan
