Summertime Learning from TCR and Daily Summer Activites from Evan Moor will be our two key workbooks this year. We're in the process of putting together a skills matrix, so parents can compare the books. We are also putting together some great summer packages - a little work, a little play. Everything will start to show up on our summer learning pages soon!

"There is a positive and statistically significant relationship between advanced reading levels and endorsed librarian staffing trends," reads the report, published last month.
