Summer Reading List
Summer is almost here and for most kids it means leaving behind classes and homework. But summer should not be the equivalent of a learning-free time for kids. To encourage learning in the summer months, Sylvan Learning is offering a suggested reading list for grades K-12 to help parents find the right book for their child's summer reading fun.
