Winter is the perfect time to snuggle up with a good book. Let your friends know which books you enjoy so they can experience them, too!
Don't Dry Up in the Desert!
Just like we need water to survive in the desert, we need to read to keep up our skills.
Research indicates that reading a minimum of 6 books at our independent reading level during the summer months will enable us to maintain our reading skills. Reading 8 or more books over the summer will actually INCREASE our reading skills!
Don't let your skills dry up...READ, READ, READ!
Spread the Light - Read a Book!
Lighthouses lead the way for ships in the dark. So, too, books lead us through life with knowledge and confidence so we don't become "lost" in our global society.
Let reading be your lighthouse of the world!
