Summer Reading ~ Books & Reading Levels

Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine and staying cool in this HOT weather! A good place to escape the heat is always the library. To help maintain your child's reading level during the summer holidays, it's important to make time to snuggle up and read. I always recommend that parents and children take turns reading. When it comes time for your child to read, try to find "just right" books that are an appropriate level. I have compiled a list of books that you may wish to check out on your next visit to the library. It's organized by level to make book selection a little easier. Happy summer reading!
