I also enrolled in a summer reading program.
As an adult I read more than most, but I tend to spend too much time on devices and with distractions like TV or other time wasters.
Please, read this article and support the effort to help kids learn to read.
I now realize the help and support I received was uncommon.
Let’s help every kid learn to read.
