Scholastic Books Instructor, Richard Allington stated in the “2003 Scholastic Instructor Journal” that the best predictor of how much students retain during the summer months is whether or not a child reads during the summer.
According to Scholastic Books, the most popular books in the nation for elementary school readers are “Bridge to Terabithia” by Katherine Paterson, “Grace for President” by Kelly DiPucchio, and “Beezus and Ramona” by Beverly Cleary.”
