    Here are some tips parents can use to encourage students to keep the pages turning all summer long:

    • Contact your child’s teacher of school media specialist for information on how to access a FREE myON Reader account for your student.

    • Read aloud together with your child every day, and let your child read to you.

    • Encourage your child to swap books with his or her friends and then discuss what they have read.

    • Set a good example! Keep lots of reading material around the house and limit distractions, such as TV and video games.

    • Take your child to the library regularly. Most libraries have special summer reading activities.

    • Use “Find a Book” to help your children generate their own personalized reading list.

    • Subscribe to magazines that are of interest to your child, like Sports Illustrated for Kids, Highlights for Children and National Geographic.

    • Make reading a part of life. If a text is relevant to a child’s life, he or she will want to read it.

    • Discuss with your child what they read. The analytical skills used in discussion are what your child needs for developing critical thinking in reading, not to mention in life.
