Summer Reading 2017
by Mrs. Carole Stubeck, School Librarian
Read for fun this summer!
Included in this flyer are:
- A very short video by children's author Dav Pilkey (author of Captain Underpants and the new series Dog Man) on the importance of summer reading. I shared this with all classes and many wanted to view it again.
- A video message to kids from renowned children's author Kate DiCamillo (love her!) about the importance of summer reading and joining your public library's summer reading program.
- A link to the summer reading program offered at the Summit Free Public Library
- Links to suggested summer reading titles from the American Library Association, Scholastic, and Bookopolis
- A link to Scholastic's online summer reading challenge - this year's theme is "take a reading roadtrip"
- A terrific Pinterest board curated by a school librarian focusing on summer reading and related activities
- The book lists for next year's 4th and 5th grade Battle of the Books
I wish you and your families a restful, relaxing, and fun summer filled with lots of time to enjoy being outdoors, reading, and spending time together doing whatever makes you happiest. Happy reading!!!
