The importance of achieving reading proficiency by the end of third grade is well established among education professionals. And, many states have even passed legislation designed to improve third grade reading, while providing specific, targeted interventions for struggling students.

The Harvard Graduate School of Education has compiled this graphic to help parents and educators  promote reading for fun and academic success!
