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 when 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. It’s also an opportunity for families to come together to learn and bond together.

“After long days of work, school, sports, and activities, sharing a story together can be one of the best ways for a parent and child to bond,” said Tague. “When a child reads, they develop not only literary skills, but the ability to think critically and use their imagination. Participating in my Summer Reading Challenge is a great way to make reading a habit, so I’d encourage any and all parents to help their children participate!”
