Summer Reading Lists by Grade

Reading over the summer is so important. Nearly 60 percent of your child’s knowledge can be lost during the summer months. By engaging your children over the summer with books and activities you can help to ensure that your kids do not lose the knowledge they gained during the school year.

This month we want to share some incredibly fun and unique reading lists for you and your kids to check out this summer. These lists have been created by a blogger/librarian that knows her stuff. MeganRuth is a librarian that understands the importance of summer reading. She also knows what books kids love, and she has compiled many different lists according to grade level and reading ability. Her blog, Alohamora, features lists from Kindergarten to high school. There is a book for everyone in these collections. SO be sure to head over to Alohamora now to check them all out!
