      Summer reading setback is an issue that can have an impact on a child's reading ability. This setback can take place over the summer months when children have an extended break in their formal schooling. There are many factors that can impact summer reading setback and one is parental involvement. This extensive research focused on primary grade levels and the types of support parents or family members can provide during the summer months in order to reduce summer reading setback. As a result, a curriculum project was developed to present multiple strategies families can use with their children over the summer months while working with them on reading. Also, this handbook demonstrates how important it is for families to be active participants when a child is learning how to read. [from author's abstract]
