Summer Reading Program


According to recent research, kids who read at least five chapter books over the summer avoid the “summer slump” (the phenomenon through which students lose much of what they have learned over the previous school year).

To help find books for their grade-level, we have recommended summer reading lists broken out by grade. Choose based on the grade your child will be starting in the fall.
