As parents, educators, public librarians and community leaders, we applaud all you have done for your children and students to keep them learning through unprecedented closing of schools. As we enter the summer months there is no doubt we are all continuing to adjust to this new reality together. Now more than ever it is critically important to keep kids engaged in summer reading to ensure their academic success in the fall.
For 2020, we are excited to share a brand new kids experience in Scholastic Home Base, a free digital destination which offers full books, live events, and games in a safe community for readers!
Data from our Kids & Family Reading Report™, Canadian Edition
shows that only 1 in 3 parents with children ages 6-17
have heard of the Summer Slide!
The Summer Slide
is the loss of skills
during the time
when students are
not in school.
84% of kids ages 6-17
and 96% of parents agree
that reading books during the summer
helps kids during the school year!
We’re here all
summer long, and
