As the end of the school year approaches, it’s time to think about how your students can build upon the skills they (and you!) worked so hard to develop throughout the year. 

According to the most recent Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report, 41 percent of kids say they get most of the books they read for fun from their school. Book access diminishes significantly for kids while school is out for summer break, so it's critically important to increase book access. When students are given access to books for the summer, they are more likely to accelerate their reading levels and receive greater support from their parents, per the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report

One way to do that this summer: Inspire their love of summer books! With themes surrounding fun in the sun and all things summer, these titles will tie their books to all the excitement they'll be having during the season. 

Plus, you can enlist your community to help build your library! With Scholastic's ClassroomsCount™ platform, educators can also easily raise funds to send books home with their students. A ClassroomsCount™ campaign is free to set up and can be created in minutes. Teachers can share their campaigns and raise funds quickly to spend across Scholastic on books and resources for summer reading and beyond. 

Shop books for the summer below! You can find all books and resources at The Teacher Store.
