School's out, and as the temperatures start to heat up, creating a summer reading list is a cool way for parents to connect with their kids and foster a love of learning. This month, Save the Children has launched a reading campaign, 100 Days of Reading, to get kids excited about books.
"Knowing what's at stake for children in America in terms of summer learning loss was a motivating factor for Save the Children to create this easy-to-do 100 Days of Reading campaign," said Carolyn Miles, CEO of Save the Children. "Read a Story, Change Their Story has the potential to make transformational change for children. We've set an ambitious goal to log 100 million minutes of reading this summer to benefit every child and hope you'll join us."
We've rounded up a list of page-turners by age group to entertain your kiddos and make them want to pick up a book and not put it down during the lazy days of summer. Help Save the Children reach 100 million minutes by logging your reading time together with the kids.
It's crucial to encourage your child to develop healthy habits early on, especially since keeping kids active and fit leads to long term lifestyle choices that ensure they remain focused on maintaining beneficial routines that work well to promote positive daily practices.

Exercise reduces the risk of disease, builds a healthier heart, strengthens emotional stability, and increases energy. Proper nutrition paired with routine activity is essential to a well-balanced way of life. We've rounded up the best fitness trackers for kids to inspire your kiddo to keep it moving and improve their overall well-being.
