|Summer of Wonder!
2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. To celebrate the spirit of creativity and exploration, the Free Library of Philadelphia created eight weeks of fun and engaging activities for children, teens, and families!
The goal of Summer Reading Game is to encourage children and teens to read for fun and to explore learning opportunities during the summer months to help combat summer learning loss so that they return to school in the fall ready to learn! Summer Reading is also an integral part of READ! By 4th, a citywide effort of 50 organizations, public and private, large and small, convened and managed by the Free Library of Philadelphia, aiming to have 97% of students in Philadelphia entering the 4th grade at reading level by 2020. This is the largest effort of its kind in the city of Philadelphia. Learn more at freelibrary.org/readby4th.
