Finding books that kids want to read can be especially challenging in the summer months. There are so many other choices competing with reading as a way to spend their free time.
Here are some suggestions for a variety of ages that have been hits with previous students and my own children. The best thing about many of these is the fact that they are a part of a series.
Teachers know that a secret to reading success is to find a series that students love.
Parents, once your child likes one book, it will be easy for them to select the next one in the series. By summer's end, your child may enjoy them so much, they have read the entire series. Take a look!
