We Imagination Library folks know that although young children and students are transitioning back into their scholarly routines from summer, the learning process must continue year-round. We’re all aware that children who do not read over the summer will lose up to three months of reading achievement, a cumulative loss. That’s why it’s so important for young children and preschoolers to receive their books each month and to experience reading with a caring adult.
