Summer Reading

The pages of my book flutter lightly in the breeze as the sun warms my Oregon skin. I am reading an entertaining memoir by a modern-day woman and children's book author from Los Angeles on a nomadic adventure. I wonder what my voracious TIS students have chosen to read for the library's Read All Summer Challenge? The new Rick Riordan book, The Red Pyramid, or perhaps the latest about Lulu and Bingo in Ladybug Girl at the Beach, or the newest 39 Clues? Indeed, for children just learning to read and for those more advanced readers improving comprehension and vocabulary, it is important to keep reading for pleasure during the summer. See the article below with the latest research on summer reading.

Remember, students must read 10 books (3 in their track language) for the Read All Summer Challenge. Students are to read books of their choice but if you need ideas, Reading Rockets has some excellent book lists. Go to http://www.readingrockets.org/articles/books/c1191

Challenge forms must be turned in to the librarian in September for certificates and prizes.
