Tips for Summer Reading – Summer Reading Giveaway!


Summer vacation is a time for GLAM Girls to let lose, have fun, vacation, and spend their lazy days lounging in front of the TV or video games. Studies show that most students experience a loss of reading skills over the summer months, but children who continue to read will gain skills. Considering that children have a lot of time on their hands over the summer there is no reason why they can’t finish reading a book or two.

We encourage all GLAM Girls to read over the summer (and all year long)..That’s why we are super excited to announce to you our 1st Summer Giveaway starting today! Start Date 6/20-End Date 7/22! We will be giving away 2 books per week for a month. Please go to our social media pages (Instagram/Facebook/Twitter) to find out the entry rules and entry guidelines.
