+ encouragement that reading become a lifelong habit
+ reluctant readers can be drawn in by the activities
+ reading over the summer helps children keep their skills up
+ the program can generate interest in the library and books
+ And it being summer, the program can just be good fun and provide an opportunity for family time.
