Gearing Up for Summer

 plant a seed read

Whether you are a parent or teacher, this is the time of year when we all start compiling our summer reading lists. A fan of many genres of literature, I like to add lots of different books to my list each summer.  Likewise, I think it is important for students to have a diverse group of titles to choose from during summer vacation.

With help from the folks at Scholastic, I’d like to help teachers and parents gear up for some summer reading fun! The experts at scholastic.com have prepared their 2014 summer book list for ages 3 and up. Scholastic has also kicked off its annual Summer Reading Challenge. The program (began on May 5) “is a free global reading program aimed to keep kids reading all summer long.” It is easy for kids and parents to sign up for the program. Once signed up, kids simply need to read and log their reading minutes. The theme this year is “Reading Under the Stars!”

As you gear up for summer, check out scholastic.com to learn more about the challenge as well as get a glimpse of their summer reading lists. tlb
