Naperville Public Library presents the battle of the books

As parents, we know that it is important for the kids to keep reading over summer break. But it can be difficult to find books that the kids are sure to keep them interested. Luckily, Naperville Public Library is having Battle of the Books.

For the past 20 years, Naperville Public Library has had the summer battle of the books. These 40 titles have been carefully selected by 203 teachers and librarians. The list is a great resource for parents looking for titles for summer reading.

If your child is in a 203 fourth or fifth grade class, he can participate in the Battle of the Books.This program is a joint effort between Naperville Public Library, School District 203 schools and Anderson's Bookshop. The list of books can be found on the NPL website and displayed at the three library branches.

Battle of the Books can be a great way to keep your children reading over the summer months. According to current research, summer reading is imperative to keeping student reading skills. Those students who participate in summer reading programs scored higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next school year versus those students who did not participate. Also, the students in the summer reading programs did not experience summer reading loss and started school in the fall with more confidence.

So keep your kids interested in their reading with Naperville Public Library and the Battle of the Books.
