School is out for the summer (or will be soon) and for most kiddos, this means sleeping in, playing in the sun, and forgetting everything learned during the schoolyear. This is where summer reading lists come into play. Most schools assign summer reading, but if you want to help your child develop a love for books, leisurely reading is a must! We’ve compiled a variety of age-appropriate literature, so whether you’ve got a bookworm or a reluctant reader on your hands, there’s a book here that your child is sure to love. And maybe this list will remind you of some of your favorite books from when you were younger and inspire you to give them another read, too!
These stories are full of fun pictures and colorful characters for the little ones who are just learning to read. Delightful to read together, or solo, these books will keep young readers excited and engaged.
There’s nothing quite like finding a good series or set of books to get you hooked on reading, because sometimes one story just isn’t enough! Most of these selections have multiple books so your child will feel invested in the stories and find friends in the characters they’re reading about.
The precarious age of preteens can leave them feeling sensitive, misunderstood, or curious about the future. These coming-of-age books can give your child someone and something to relate to, and if not, at least they’ll find a good story to get lost in for a little while.
These books are a mix of classic and contemporary. Poignant and touching, these stories will help your teen see things from a different perspective and empathize with others as they follow these characters through life’s trials and tribulations.
