Too hot to go outside? Lets Read a Story...

Are you excited about the summer? No school, and pool parties? We are too! And there are several nursery rhymes and stories that are waiting for you this summer!

Take a look at some of these great texts to start off your summer and "splash" into reading!


If you enjoyed those texts, check this one out...

This quirky twist of the traditional story of the mouse and grandfather clock will keep children and adults wanting to read more. Baker does an outstanding job by revamping this nursery rhyme by having the traditional mouse have more humorous interactions with the other animals as the grandfather clock strikes at every hour. This edition of Hickory Dickory Dock, is a must read and will be great to share with your family this summer!

Remember as students finish the school year and begin enjoying their summer vacations, that reading is essential to their everyday lives, and reading does not stop in the summer time... it's something we do every day. We encourage you to pick up this text in your local library or bookstore along with other classic and some fresh nursery rhymes.
