I'm taking a summer break to read through the pile of books that has been stacking up - and threatening to teeter over. So I'll most likely be hanging out in the hammock with a good story and a frosty glass of lemonade.
You can do the same. If you're looking for some books to read, check out the archives - or head over to your local library. This summer NY state libraries are hosting programs around the theme of "superheroes". You can find grade-level summer reading lists here. For more reading lists, check out ALSC.
Also, Barnes & Noble is challenging children in grades 1-6 to read eight books this summer and keep a reading journal. Readers can turn in their journals before Labor Day to receive a free book (from a selected list). More info here and here.
