"Research continues to indicate that summer reading programs, if designed and implemented well, are a key tool in addressing gaps in reading achievement. This book provides practical information about many aspects of the design and implementation of summer reading programs-from strategies for funding such programs to the types of books to make available to children, and more. With several new chapters and features-and revisions throughout-the second edition is even more useful than the first."-Nell K. Duke, University of Michigan

"Few books merit both labels, research-based and practical; this book is absolutely one that does! Reading about the many ways real schools have reversed summer loss by providing children access to books will have you saying to yourself, "We can do this!"-Pat & Jim Cunningham, Wake Forest University & UNC-Chapel Hill
