It may not seem like it here in the northern Great Plains, where we are still looking out onto completely snow-covered lawns, but summer is right around the corner. And with summer comes the annual fun that is Summer Reading!
Last week, the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) released its Summer Reading Book Lists, which feature recommended titles for children in grades K-8. There are separate lists for: K-2nd Grade; 3rd-5th Grade; and 6th-8th Grade.
Some of the featured titles include:
- Actual Size by Steve Jenkins (K-2)
- The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (Gr 3-5)
- When You Reach Me By Rebecca Stead (Gr. 6-8)
Check out your local library or the ND State Library for these and other great titles on this year’s summer reading lists!
