The good ol' summertime … traditionally a time to relax and oftentimes – read. The benefits of summer reading are numerous. For gifted kids, summer reading can be a way to relax; time to explore their passions. It is a good time for these kids to assess what it means to be gifted and how to deal with associated feelings. It can also be a time to read the Classics which may not be covered during the school year. Summer reading for gifted adults can be a time to catch up on reading wish lists; a pastime during vacations.

Finding age-appropriate books for gifted readers is always a challenge. Asynchronous development can make it difficult when reading levels far surpass maturity levels.
