Read This: Kid-Recommended Summer Books

shutterstock_363458258Summer reading can be fun! When else do you have the time to delve into an entire series of books? Whether or not your local library sponsors a summer reading program, you can still help your child enjoy their summer reading by setting up goals that add up to prizes, or a special trip to a movie of their choice. Let them pick some of their books, have them read a chapter aloud to you…whatever works best to keep your child engaged and motivated to read.

The following lists have been compiled by the Association of Library Service to Children based on recommendations from kid readers across the entire country. Some of these books may be available in ebook, audio book, braille, and large print formats so they are accessible to as many different types of special needs as possible.

    The website is easy to navigate and gives you information you’d want as a teacher and/or mom. Exciting!

    I loved reading your January,2018 letter…if there’s ever a way to help, let me know. Your letter was a wonderful lead-in to a hopeful and changing New Year!
