Shin, Fay H. and Krashen, Stephen D. Summer Reading Program and Evidence. Pearson: Boston, 2008. 028.55 Shin ISBN 978-0-205-50489-9

"Summer Reading is a timely look at the power of reading in the development of student literacy. It delivers a potent message to administrators, classroom teachers, reading specialists, and librarians to design summer reading programs based on a balanced view of reading instruction." --Sheila Bostrom, Brush Schools, Colorado Inspired by school-established summer reading camps designed to help struggling readers, Dr. Fay Shin and Dr. Stephen Krashen have built a research-based plan to guide schools in replicating this successful strategy. Written by two top scholars in literacy and ESL, Summer Reading: Program and Evidence provides a framework rooted in scientific data supporting how these programs succeed.
