Tague Kicks Off Youth Summer Reading Challenge

June 23, 2020

Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I,Ref-Schoharie) has prepared a Summer Reading Challenge for this year which recognizes children who read 15 minutes a day for 40 days during the months of July and August. Tague believes reading during the summer, especially following a period during which many students had their traditional schooling interrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, provides a way to sharpen both the literary skills and imagination of young people, as well as an opportunity for families to come together to learn and bond together.

“Reading opens the imagination, helps us to learn and can even bring us closer to the people we love,” said Tague. “I encourage all parents to have their children take part in this reading challenge not just to develop literacy skills, but to instill a desire to learn within them while they’re young and to take an active role in their development. Through reading you and your family can make memories that will last a lifetime and create a tradition to be passed on to children for generations.”
