West Haven Summer Reads 2019 Gr 3-4

Entering Third and Fourth


Welcome to a list of some of the wonderful books that West Haven school librarians have organized as suggested reading for you in elementary, intermediate, middle or high school.

You are encouraged to try any of the recommended books for your grade level in the fall. You are also encouraged to read books that you enjoy that may not be on this list.

The more reading you do this summer, the better prepared you will be for the next school year...and for the rest of your life!

Find a quiet spot, curl up with a good book, and READ!
