According to current studies, it happens again and again that schoolchildren are not yet able to read even in the sixth grade. This refers to elementary school students at the end of the fifth grade. However, according to another finding of the studies, these children often lack access to a school library. Fortunately, this is not an issue in rodental near coburg, as the final event of the "summer vacation reading club 2018" showed in the city library showed: 119 girls and boys borrowed 1555 books from the rodental city library during the rough vacations, read them and filled out an evaluation card for each book borrowed. The children were automatically entered into a draw for a "pit lane ticket" for the "carrera world and a ticket to the "geiselwind" amusement park part.
Every child who read more than three books received a certificate and was able to choose one of the many gifts donated by 18 companies in rodental. During the 42 days off school, three girls were particularly persistent: winner lena karsch read and rated a book almost every day. Her mother said that the books were even taken to the beach on vacation, where they were more important for lena than refreshment in the sea. 40 books lena karsch had taken in during the 42 days as reading fodder. Maresa brejschka and lotte derooj each had 27 books to choose from during the summer holidays.
