Make Gains in Reading This Summer

Decades of research indicates that summer vacation increases the achievement gap in reading between low-income children and their middle class peers.

Students Self-Select Books

The Allington & McGill-Franzen Take Home Kits include a wide selection of best-in-class literature and high-interest informational texts.

Each kit includes multiple copies of 40-50 titles at a range of reading levels with which to engage and support every student. The number of titles each student receives varies by grade and is based on Allington & McGill-Franzen’s research on the necessary quantity to stem summer loss.

Limited Access to Books

The best predictor of whether or not a child reads during the summer is whether or not he or she has access to books. More than half of the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income youth can be explained by inequality of access to summer learning opportunities.
