Reading This Summer: Pre-K - 3rd Grade

Most school districts have suggested reading list for students during the summer. Check on your child's school web site and make sure he/she is reading any required reading while on summer break. The following titles are books that I have found students enjoy hearing or are award winning titles. Great literature abounds for children. Ask friends and relatives to buy your child books instead of toys or video games. Research shows that reading to your child early on will improve a child's academic performance throughout life. Below are my favorite children's literature for Pre-K -Third Grade.
