Summer Reading Programs in New York

Sandy Chin is known as a very highly successful portfolio manager. She knows how to organize, maintain and how to get things done. She started working at PS11, a public elementary school situated on the West Side in New York City as soon as she felt her need there. Reading the books in summer was a need for kids but for some families, purchasing those books is a financial burden. William T. Harris School is also known as PS11 that proudly assists and serves a varied group of students to manage two low-income household projects in this school. Sandy Chin acknowledged the solution that was needed.


In reading skills, a summer slide is experienced by many children over the summer as other activities trump the reading load normally which students face during the year. If we focus on some other cases, we will observe that children may not be interested in reading at all over the summer as they don’t have any access to books. Also sometimes they are not even encouraged to read at all. Many children can begin to forget what they’ve learnt at school during the year as the summer break is a long time break of three months for kids. It’s common in children to slip back in an entire reading grade level who don’t give attention to reading over the summer break. This is not a problem for Sandy Chin’s son who attended the PS11 in New York City as he got access to plenty sources of books and also impatient to spend time at the local libraries in the neighborhood.


Summer reading programs have been initiated in many libraries to keep children busy in reading over the summer. Though, many parents and their children don’t get a chance to visit the library. It’s good to have a book of your own as you can re-read, touch, and keep re-using it whenever you want. Many children have a special affinity for books as they love to read so; they provide meticulous care to their books. They love to keep books close to their hearts like their toys or stuffed animals.
