Summer Reading

Summer offers kids lots of opportunities to discover new interests, new books, and the pure pleasure of reading just for fun. Summer is also a great time for hands-on explorations that connect kids to what they’re reading — that helps build background knowledge and ensures that children are ready for the challenges of the new school year. Also see Start with a Book, our companion website about reading, writing, and exploring all summer long.
