The goal of the Shine On Summer Reading Book Fair is the shine a light on the importance of summer reading for Washington DC- area children and families.

Most U.S. students go to school for 180 days during the year and enjoy more than two months of time off every summer. Research shows that many students experience learning loss when they do not engage in academic enrichment activities over the summer. Reading achievement loss can be significant, and when students start school in the fall they often struggle to catch up.
