Scholastic Releases Summer Reading Stats From the 8th Edition of The Kids & Family Reading Report™


 Scholastic (NASDAQ: SCHL), the global children’s publishing, education and media company, released a first look at summer reading data from the eighth edition of its Kids & Family Reading Report™, a national survey of parents’ and children’s reading attitudes and behaviors. The newly released data highlights parents’ and kids’ views on summer reading–a topic that is top of mind for administrators and educators across the country. This new research delves into parents’ understanding of the importance of summer reading and how access to books is limited over the summer due to school recess, while tapping into kids’ interests to offer parents and educators useful tips for summer reading success.

“Literacy skills are paramount for kids to grow both academically and emotionally and the research has shown us, time and time again, that reading over the summer helps students in the following school year,” said Alexander. 

More data from the 8th edition of the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report will be available over the coming months.
