WHAT BETTER WAY TO SPEND THE SUMMER than with your head in the clouds and your nose in a book? Take a break from all the screen time with these picks from Nora Camacho, a behavior specialist from Rady Children’s Alexa’s Playful Learning Academy for Young Children (PLAYC), that encourage kids to use their imagination, ponder different perspectives and most of all, have fun. “This is a great time to reignite our children’s interest in reading,” she says. “It is so important that we encourage young learners to spend time interacting with books: reading on their own, exploring illustrations, telling themselves the stories from memory and being read to.
