Books on Break

Books on Break is a free program designed to provide books for children from Title I or under-resourced area schools to enjoy when school is out of session. Each spring Promising Pages goes into select schools and holds free, pop-up book fairs. Students in grades Pre-K through 5th choose 5 books to take home and read over the summer months. This program is targeted at reducing the “summer slide” children experience during the extended summer break.
