FRANKFORT – To keep kids’ minds engaged this summer, State Senator Michael E. Hastings is launching a Summer Book Club for children and young people who live in the 19th State Senate District.
“Our goal is to help prevent summer slide during break by helping keep students sharp and ready for the fall,” said Hastings (D-Frankfort). “I’m excited to host the summer reading program again this year and hope to have even more participation than we did last year.”
The Summer Book Club requires students to read eight books of their choice during the summer break, record the names of the books on a form and return the form to Hastings’ office by Aug. 19. Everyone who completes the Summer Book Club will receive a gift card and certificate from Hastings.
Studies have shown that reading 20 minutes a day makes a huge difference in language and brain development, while also promoting a sense of empathy and interpersonal connection.
“Summer slide” is the tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year. Hastings hopes this program will help children get excited about reading.
“This program will help prepare students for the upcoming school year,” said Hastings. “I hope the reading club is something fun and educational that students can do during their summer vacation.”
To receive a book club form, visit www.SenatorHastings.com to download and print the form. Parents can also call Hastings’ Frankfort office at 815-464-5431 to request a copy by mail.
Hastings urges interested residents to call his office with any additional questions.
