Huntington Learning Center's 2012 Summer Reading Adventure Program Kicks Off

ORADELL, NJ--(Marketwire - Apr 30, 2012) - Huntington Learning Center is gearing up to launch its annual summer reading program, Reading Adventure. Participating students choose books from Huntington's carefully selected book lists, which offer a variety of high-interest choices by grade level and reading ability. Students receive a reading "passport" in which they record each book they read and write a journal entry about it.

"Summer reading is so important, not only because it helps prevent regression that is common during summer vacation, but because it's a great opportunity to get children excited about reading," says Eileen Huntington, co-founder of Huntington Learning Center. "Our reading lists include highly appealing books that engage even struggling and non-readers. The goal is to encourage students to read for fun and continue reading in their free time simply for the enjoyment of it. The more they read, the better they will become at reading -- and the more they'll actually choose to read."

The Reading Adventure program runs throughout the summer. At the end of the summer, Huntington Learning Center locations will host parties to celebrate each student's reading achievements and award each participant a trophy.

"Studies show that reading during summer break is one of the best ways for students to maintain their reading skills and be prepared for the coming school year," says Huntington. "Our Reading Adventure program is all about the joy, imagination and adventure of reading. Children get to immerse themselves in great stories and books and explore their interests."
