The New York Times Learning Network has just announced their annual fantastic summer reading contest.

You can read all about it at The Eighth Annual New York Times Summer Reading Contest.

Anything that can help reduce the “Summer Slide” is appreciated!

I have a ton of resources on the topic at The Best Resources On The “Summer Slide.”
