With as much fun as Adam has during the summer, we applaud him for using a book to reset and read. That’s why Adam Guyton is Leander ISD Summer Reader of the Week!
Adam is a busy young man. The Camacho Elementary first-grader plays video games one minute and is jumping on the trampoline the next. Coloring. Swimming. Drawing. Freeze-tagging with neighbors. The one-man show dashes from one place to the next.
However, when things cool down, or when Adam gets upset, there’s one place you’ll find him: in his room with a book. Right now, Adam is reading Scooby-Doo and the Weird Water Park by Jesse Leon McCann, playing perfectly into his sense of adventure. When looking for his summer stack, he likes Batman and other superhero books. He appreciates books that have pictures to go along with them. He likes silly books too because he loves to laugh.
According to the National Summer Learning Association, a child can lose 2 – 2 ½ months of reading skills over the summer. Experts recommend four quick and easy ways to keep a reader sharp: taking books on vacation, making regular trips to the library, joining a book club, or a subscription service that allows a child to pick their own books, and introducing a child to a popular book series.
Another way to create a life-long reader is through building a summer stack filled with personal favorite genres and characters. For Adam, he likes Batman and other superhero books. He appreciates books that have pictures to go along with them. He likes silly books, too because he loves to laugh.
“Adam is a great reader and we’re so proud of how much he has progressed,” his mom Lexie said. “I’m excited also to see where he goes from here.”
For becoming his own kind of superhero, hooray for Adam Guyton–Leander ISD Summer Reader of the Week!
