kids suffer from a backward slide in their reading development when
reading activities wane over the summer months.

the school break. Research shows that younger elementary school
students rarely make up deficits in reading once they fall behind.

looked upon as 'homework.' While reading books is important, games that
use letter-recognition, alphabetizing, syllable, rhyming and rhythm
skills can keep kids' reading skills sharp without cracking open a book.
