According to the John Hopkins University´s Center for Summer Learning, all young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer months. Parents looking to keep learning alive at home during summer vacation can turn to Daily Summer Activities, a series of resource books for grades PreK-5 from Evan-Moor Educational Publishers, a leading publisher of learning materials for kindergarten through sixth grade. Developed by educators, Daily Summer Activities is designed to help children make a successful transition from one grade to the next. Using these books, children can practice age-appropriate activities in the major subject areas by completing 10 weekly units. Each unit provides two pages of short, focused practice for every day of the week.
