Summer Reading Club 2021
Did you know that children lose an average of 1-3 months of learning over the summer? Summer learning loss is even more of a threat after a year of disrupted childcare and school experiences. School-age children, preschoolers and even infants and toddlers need intellectual stimulation over the summer in order for their brains to grow optimally. Research tells us that the best way to do this is to keep them reading all summer long. Our FREE Barefoot Summer Book Club is designed to do just that!

"We absolutely love recommending 'The Barefoot Book of Children' to the families in our program. Not only is it perfect for sharing in our 'Around the World in 60 Minutes' program (in which we visit a different country every week and share songs, stories, and foods from each culture), it's also perfect for our every day programming. We love books that celebrate diversity and inclusivity, and taking a picture-walk through this book, with its vivid and detailed illustrations, is both explicit and subtle in it's treatment of children all over this planet of ours. It's about difference and similarities, about plurality and togetherness, and we love having copies of this book in our classroom for our families to explore!"
