INFOhio offers 160 fiction and nonfiction eBooks for Ohio’s 4th graders through Scholastic’s Storia.

Students can also browse the titles and choose books to read on their own.

While middle- and higher-income children spend their summers engaged in activities and enrolled in programs that strengthen and reinforce learning, the vast majority of children in low-income communities have little or no access to such opportunities. By the time school begins each year, low-income children's lack of access to enriching summer activities results in their falling weeks, if not months, behind their more advantaged peers."
