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.
To mark the start of the FIFA Women's World Cup on June 7th, we've stepped away from the sidelines to select the coolest soccer gear that your girl is sure to get a kick out of on and off the field. "We're so excited for the Cup, as it is a great reminder of not only why we love the sport of soccer, but it is a showcase some of the best athletes in the world – strong, positive female role models for young girls," says Katy Slater, Director of Product Development for Soccer Shots. "Participating in soccer provides girls with the opportunity to set tangible goals and work to achieve those goals. Being able to see themselves work hard and accomplish something builds self-confidence on the field and in life."
We've rounded up the best gear guaranteed to score some major cool points for mom and dad. Check out these fab finds to help your soccer star make some smooth moves.
While there's a camera built into almost every cell phone available today, nothing beats a quality picture shot the old-fashioned way with a cool, kid-friendly camera.

Mom and dad can savor all of those sentimental photographs thanks to this super selection of picture-perfect cameras. Be sure to snap up the best model for your kiddo's next photoshoot!

Save the Children has a great reading program that not only gets your child excited about reading but also supports a great cause.
Whether it's the beach or pool, in your own backyard or on vacation, spending time in the water is what summer is all about. Of course, water safety is of the utmost importance at any age. While you might be tempted to skip the pool with your infant all together, there are several baby floats that make swimming with your baby a fun and safe activity. These floats were specifically made with baby in mind, but under no circumstances should you ever leave your child unsupervised while they're in the water. Baby floats come in all shapes and sizes—many even include a sun canopy for extra protection. We've rounded up our picks of the best baby floats for a happy and safe summer!
Finding extra storage space outside can be tricky, especially if you have a garage or basement already overflowing with lawn tools, outdoor games, sports gear and more.
