Summer Reading for Kids


Let's not forget about the kids reading over the summer. Reading every day during the summer months helps children retain and reinforce what they have learned throughout the school year. Choose books that go along with what they learned in school, but also choose books that are fun. See if your local bookstore or library has a summer reading program where kids can earn rewards for reading. Here is a (very short) list of books for kids to help get you started. These were some of my kids' favorites when they were little. My one daughter would often bring a pile of books to Aunt Susan when she came to visit. Aunt Susan would bring chocolate and they would read for a while, both of them very happy with the arrangement.

If your kids have a favorite, leave it in the comments section to share with others.
