Children and teens who participate in summer reading programs show an increase in vocabulary scores on standardized testing and an increase in comprehension scores. In fact, reading just 5 books over the summer can prevent summer learning loss.
To help inspire children and teens to keep reading over the summer, Bruins players, including Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, and Tuukka Rask have helped libraries develop Favorite Books of the Boston Bruins - a new recommended reads list that also includes librarian picks for the best hockey books.

Summer library programs are free and fun. Register at READSinMA.org or stop by your local library.
