Just Read, Families!

Summer Literacy Adventure 2014

Florida's First Lady Ann Scott and the Florida Department of Education's Just Read, Florida! Office proudly announce the 2014 Summer Literacy Adventure. As summer is fast approaching, we encourage schools, students and parents to prepare for the summer break by participating in this fun challenge to have students read during the break.

Just Read, Families! is a summer reading program which provides parents with information about actively reading with their children during the summer months.

Research shows that children who do not continue reading through the summer can lose a month or more of progress made during the school year. By encouraging their children to read, parents are playing a critical role in achieving our goal of having every child reading at or above grade level. Now is the time to take advantage of the many activities and resources available on this website. Keep your children engaged in reading!

Children are a precious gift, and the opportunity to inspire a love of reading is both a great honor and an extraordinary responsibility. With your help, we can make Florida's reading goals a reality.
