Summer Reading Lists 2017

About Our Summer Reading Lists

Every year, we update these lists, adding newly published titles and keeping in mind the unique character and particular interests of each rising grade.  

Before printing these lists, we suggest that you and/or your child(ren) look them over online. We have linked several of the titles to related informational and entertaining websites.  

These links should encourage both reluctant and avid readers to dig in and make good choices.
            
Happy Summer! Happy Reading!
