Today is the day my friends to amble over to your local Marin County Free Library branch and sign up for this summer's reading game, Read to the Rhythm!
It is crucial for children, 'tweens, and teens to maintain the reading skills they've acquired over the previous school year in order to prevent "summer slide" and there is no funner, more enjoyable way to do that than to participate in the summer reading game.
I think reading for the sheer joy of it is one of the most delicious things of summer; at the pool, under a shady tree, in a tent with a flashlight. It's all good.
I hope you enjoy this message from our First Lady Michelle Obama.
I pledged to keep 500 kids learning this summer and I hope you'll join me. Happy National Summer Learning Day friends! xoxo Miss Kitty
