Summer reading

The long, lazy days of summer offer 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. Find more resources and ideas in our Summer Reading calendar section.
