Summer Reading Already

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.

  1. there is something so delicious about checking off the titles read from a list...even more delicious is the fact that books on such a list never disappoint.

    1. Agreed. I like it when I get lists from others and can do that.

    1. You are welcome. I'm glad they motivate you all to read. Tell your son to look for the sequel to THE FALSE PRINCE, coming soon.
