#WhatsYourFour

Children who read four or more books over the summer fare better on reading-comprehension tests in the fall than their peers who read one or no books over the summer.*

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is challenging all residents of Massachusetts to read four books this summer – and to share their experience with others. Join the conversation and tell us, #WhatsYourFour?
1.
Post the titles and authors of your four books to Facebook, or Instagram along with a picture of yourself reading.
2.
Include the text “Kids who read just four books over the summer fare better on reading-comprehension tests in the fall. Learn more at readsinma.org,” and use the hashtag #WhatsYourFour.
3.
Tag a friend on the post and ask them to share their four!
Together, we can share in the fun of reading, and encourage children and teens to read this summer.
