Whenever we have had some uninterrupted time in the library office this week, we have added titles and annotations to our K-5 summer reading lists. Each year we begin anew. We peruse the order lists from the past year, choosing titles appropriate for each grade level and trying to balance the lists with picture books, nonfiction, poetry, chapter books, and a tale or two. Then we add a few classics and a couple favorite read-aloud titles. We imagine the students going to the public library in June, July, and August to gather their choices from our lists. It brings satisfaction on the cold winter days.
