ORADELL, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/13 -- With summer around the corner, Huntington Learning Centers are kicking off its annual Reading Adventure program for children ages kindergarten through eighth grade. To participate, students first choose books from Huntington's pre-selected book lists, which include a wide range of high-interest book choices for all grade levels and reading abilities.

Reading Adventure underscores the excitement that a good book can bring into a child's life. Each participating reader receives a reading "passport" in which he or she record the books he or she reads and writes a journal entry about each. The entire program encourages students to think of reading as a way to explore new ideas, interests, places and people.

"We believe that summer is an ideal time to nurture the reading habit because children have more time to read for pleasure than they do during the school year," says Dr. Raymond Huntington, founder and chairman of Huntington Learning Center. "Our Reading Adventure program is designed with fun in mind. Our experts have identified a variety of books for children of all ages and reading abilities -- stories that engage children and get them excited about books. Experience has proven to us time and time again that the more children read, the better readers they become and the more they enjoy it -- and choose it as an activity they want to do."

Huntington's Reading Adventure program runs from May through August. At the culmination of the program, Huntington Learning Center locations will honor participants' reading achievements. During the celebration each child is recognized for his/her achievement and receives a special award.

"Reading Adventure is one of our favorite programs at Huntington because it gets children excited about reading," says Huntington. "Students who participate keep their brains active while school is on break, and just as important, they learn to think of reading as one of life's great pastimes."
