We’ve made Summer Reading our mission here at Education.com this summer. As part of our campaign, we’ve created an infographic that shows your child’s risk for summer slide.

The infographic has already caught the attention of some movers and shakers in parenting — thanks to Adventures in Mommy Land, Jen Robinson, Songs for Teaching and the U.S. Education and Work Force Program for helping get the word out.

No matter where your family falls on this chart, mosey on over to our activities section for ideas on reading activities to help combat summer slide and keep your kid entertained all summer.

    This is a great infographic! What is the source of the 10 or more books indicator? I am looking into research-based public library summer reading impacts.
    thanks!!!
