The long documented "summer slide" with respect to literacy is only real if we let it be real. Get books in their hands; read in front of them, to them, and with them. Ask them about their faves. Encourage them to experiment with various genres. Tap into a book blog, etc. Hang out at the library on rainy days, and some sunny ones as well.
