Reading is the key to fighting summer learning loss, aka the dreaded “summer slide.” Keeping kids’ minds active and learning over the summer sets them up for success when they return to school in the fall. Since 2006, CLiF’s Summer Readers program has grown more than 1500 percent in the quest to keep books in the lives of thousands of children who need them during the months away from school.

What can you do to help fight summer slide? CLiF has adapted some of our literacy resources for parents, early educators, camp counselors, and anyone involved with children’s summer programming.
