Make America
Read Again


America: The land of opportunity. While most children have the option to get books from their school library, some kids don’t have the resources to read while school is out of session. Studies show that when children read throughout the summer they can increase their learning ability when school commences in the fall. Our Literacy Summit will provide the tools you need to keep your students on track and help them develop a love for reading all year round. Kids Read Now offers children the opportunity to continue reading throughout the summer. During the Literacy Summit, you will learn the wide-ranging benefits to combating the summer reading slide by participating in workshops and by pondering the valued testimonials of our keynote speakers.
