Did you know that two months of reading skills are LOST over the summer and that it can take up to two months from the first day of school for a student’s brain development to get back on track?
Jennifer Emmett, Vice President for Content in the Kid’s Media division at National Geographic, talks about how the best-selling National Geographic Kids Almanac has helped millions of kids beat the summer slide. The key to getting a child to pick up a book is to find one that interests them. Featuring a shark on the cover, a shark-themed Almanac Newsmaker Challenge and packed with 10 sections of high interest topics ranging from animal life to sports to amazing destinations around the world, the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2018 is the perfect way to take a big bite out of the summer slide. www.NatGeoKids.com/almanac
