Huntington Learning Center Launches 2017 Summer Reading Adventure Program

It’s summer break, which also means it is time for Huntington Learning Center’s annual summer reading program, Reading Adventure. Students select books from Huntington’s carefully formulated book lists that offer a range of choices by grade level and reading ability. They then record what they read in their “reading passport,” sharing their assessment and opinions about each book. The program is intended to introduce children to high-interest reading material and get them excited about reading.

Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center says that reading is one of the easiest ways to minimize regression over the long summer break from school and help children discover the joy of reading. “Our Reading Adventure program fosters a love of learning by helping children discover how much fun reading can be,” she says. “We know from experience that children become stronger readers through regular practice. With its more relaxed pace, summer is a perfect opportunity for parents to help their children develop a daily reading habit. The more they read, the more they will enjoy it—and become better readers.”

Huntington’s Reading Adventure program runs throughout the summer. Huntington says that parents can pick up information and passports for their children at centers beginning as early as June. As parents gear up to make the most of the program this summer, she also offers several tips:

  • Make reading time family time. Spend 20-30 minutes each evening as a family reading in the same room—perhaps with some tasty summer treats and drinks to enjoy.
  • Set goals. Have your child aim to read a certain number of books this summer or make a list of books, topics or authors he or she wants to explore.
  • Hit the library once a week. Regular trips to the library are an effective way to fuel your child’s fire for reading. Don’t forget to check out any summer reading activities going on. Encourage your child to talk to the librarian about book suggestions as well.
  • Pick a book for the whole family to read. Why not make this the summer of the “family book club” and have your child pick a book that you can all read together?
  • Choose a vacation theme book. If you’re going on any trips this summer, explore books that might be an engaging read while on the trip—stories set in the location to where you’re headed, for example.
