Summer Reading Clubs for Your Kiddos

School may be (almost) out for summer, but that doesn’t mean that your little ones should stop practicing their reading. Last week I chatted with Carol Ann Luby, the vice president of membership for the University Park Library, and she shared an interesting fact with me: children can lose two to three brain levels in reading during the summer time if they don’t do it regularly. As a child I spent my summers enrolled in Hyer’s book club, and I credit it as one of the reasons I love reading so much (shout out to Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Shuford). Are you looking for something similar to enroll your little ones in? Here are the details on Mayor Rawlings’ summer reading camp.
The Mayor’s Summer Reading Club will last for eight weeks (June 15 – August 10) and aims to get the whole family involved (that’s right, there’s a section for adults too).  You can register online or at any Dallas Library location. Instead of selecting a specific book for kiddos to enjoy, this reading club wants participant to log their hours spent reading – and receive prizes as a reward (free Pizza Hut, perhaps?).
