Summer Reading Information

“Find A Book, Kentucky” for Summer Reading!

During the summer months, the challenge of keeping students reading sometimes increases. Research has shown that students who do not read consistently over the summer can lose momentum in maintaining the progress they made during the school year; this phenomenon is known as the “summer slide.”

Below is a FREE, research-based tool “Find a Book, Kentucky” to help students create a personalized reading list and then locate those books at the nearest library or bookseller.

Ready to get started?

  •        Download the two page flyer (attached to this email) to share with students and parents.
  •        Visit “Find a Book, Kentucky.”
    1.      Go to fab.lexile.com/fab/ky/.
    2.      Enter the child’s Lexile measure or grade level.
    3.      Pick books that match the reader’s interests.
    4.      View and refine the search results.
