Washington – Today Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) announced the start of his 2019 Summer Reading Challenge for students through eighth grade in California’s Fifth Congressional District.
“Reading is a fundamental part of a developing child’s interaction with the world – sparking imagination, encouraging the exploration of new topics, and keeping active academically in the summer months. That’s why I am excited to announce the start of my 2019 Summer Reading Challenge!” said Thompson. “Students and parents are encouraged to sign up and be challenged to read throughout the summer and those who register will be recognized for their reading pursuits. I hope all our local students will participate!
Each year, Thompson’s Summer Reading Challenge encourages local students to read throughout the summer months. Reading lists are developed by the Association for Library Service to Children and are broken down by grade so all recommendations are age appropriate. That list can be found byclicking here. Thompson will recognize all students who participate at an event at the end of the summer. Students, parents, and teachers should sign up by clicking here.
