Los Tweens give reading tips for tweens to help them enjoy the best books this summer.
Summer is a great time to keep your tweens reading but letting them explore new titles or genres. And it’s a terrific opportunity to have them read titles by Latinos and multicultural authors that address stories from a cultural, social or community perspective. Titles can be in English, Spanish or other languages but the idea is get them reading something they usually don’t. And by the way- maybe it’s an educational magazine as well- the idea is to make reading fun! It’s also muy importante to encourage summer reading so they don’t forget the comprehension and faster reading skills they develop during the school year. We are supporting a great initiative created by four of our Latina blogger amigas from the Wise Latinas Club and other blogs called Latinas for Latino Literature and they’re particularly focused on encouraging a summer reading program.
