To me, summer means biting into a juicy slice of watermelon, watching the sun rise at the Jersey Shore, and losing myself for hours in the pages of a book. I hope that you and your child will also enjoy some great books this summer. Please check the specific summer reading guidelines for each grade, and be sure to browse my "Rainy Day Recommendations" for books to combat the bouts of boredom that seem to crop up every summer.
If your child is struggling to select a book, I would love to help. Please do not hesitate to reach out by email at throughout the summer. It is my great honor to continue to serve this community of readers.
