Since the summer of 2009, the Boston Bruins have been partnering with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) and the Massachusetts Library System (MLS) to present When You Read, You Score! The summer reading program encourages children and teens to read over the summer months so they may avoid the "summer slide" and maintain skills they've learned over the academic year.
Returning for a second summer, the Boston Bruins will also be partnering with the Children's Librarians of New Hampshire to bring When You Read, You Score! to the local libraries of New Hampshire.
Children and teens who participate in summer reading programs show an increase in vocabulary scores on standardized testing and an increase in comprehension scores. In fact, reading just 4 books over the summer can prevent summer learning loss.
