Reading over the summer can help close the achievement gap for students who suffer from summer learning loss. Today, City Year joins the U.S. Department of Education in #ReadWhereYouAre Day- a call to action to raise awareness for and encourage reading across all ages. Need some reading material suggestions? Or maybe you just want to revisit some old favorites? We've got you covered.
