We are well into the summer (back to school season soon), and we are currently in the 3rd Quarter of the Year!!! Summer is certainly the season to get the majority of your reading done.
There is more treasure in books than all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island. - Walt Disney
Reading has many advantages for young women. While there are beach visits, shopping, dining, exercising, etc., let's not forget to save some of that time for reading. There have been studies that have proven that there is a substantial amount of knowledge loss during the summer. Why? Simply because there is no information being planted into the minds of most teenagers outside of social media happenings and television shows and music lyrics. Even I, as an educator, have to get new and fresh information in the summer to prepare for the fall school season. Reading this summer will prepare young women for the new school year. More information can cause you to reach higher heights in life and embark on more and better opportunities in the future.
