Get Your Kids Reading This Summer!

Jul 22, 2019 by Yolanda Fontanez-Coleman | Reading, Summer Tutoring

I love to read! Reading is truly something I look forward to. I’ve always loved reading as a child, and even more so as an adult.

However, not everyone has a love for reading. In fact, it is often difficult to get kids to read during the school year, and even harder to get them motivated to read during the summer.

Academic Success

Ask yourself:

  • Does summer reading become a daunting task for your child?
  • Does your child lose motivation to read often, let alone during the summer?
  • Do you feel like a nagging parent in order to get your child to read?

If you you answered YES to any of these questions then we have an option for you! 

Audiobooks Are the Answer!

Audiobooks are a great option to get your child reading this summer. They are not only beneficial for struggling readers but for students who lack the motivation or interest to read. Incorporating audiobooks can be a game changer for your child this summer. Research shows that listening to audiobooks has many benefits:

  • Builds background knowledge 
  • Improves and expands vocabulary 
  • Increases comprehension 
  • Improves motivation 

Reading this summer is one of the most important things your child can do to keep his or her brain stimulated, engaged and to avoid summer slide. Keep them engaged and reading all summer long with audiobooks. Audible and Learning Ally are two popular options for downloading and listening to audiobooks.
