It seems like there are more requests for reading lists come summer, and while parents are encouraged to allow children to read for pleasure, it can be helpful to get suggestions from a list so the sheer number of materials available at the library isn’t overwhelming. To that end, here are a few summer book lists from reputable sources.
The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) provides downloadable reading lists by age group, and their 2017 lists are available now.
The Horn Book, a respected review journal for children and young adult materials, has a summer list with newer titles for you to discover.
Reading Rockets also provides several years’ worth of summer reading lists.
Bank Street College Children’s Library provides suggested lists for summer, as well as some interesting, subject-based lists.
Plano Independent School District provides suggested titles for children by grade level.
Summer reading and participating in the Plano summer reading program (which begins June 1!) will help your child maintain those reading skills gained during the school year!
