The American Library Association says-

The benefits to readers in a summer learning program include:

  • encouragement that reading become a lifelong habit

  • reluctant readers can be drawn in by the activities

  • reading over the summer helps children keep their skills up

  • the program can generate interest in the library and books

And it being summer, the program can just be good fun and provide an opportunity for family time.
