Children’s Summer Reading List

When you read a book as a child, it becomes a part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your whole life does.
— Meg Ryan, You’ve Got Mail

If you are at all like me, you walk into the children’s section of the library and stare at the 15 rows of hardcovers and wonder, “Where do I start?”  Well, I did a little homework and put together a kid-tested summer reading list for you. Some of these titles are doctor-recommended. Others feature authors from the New York Times Children’s Book Review and the London Book Fair. When it comes to what our kids are reading, I think it is all right to be a bit of a book snob, don’t you think? The good news is, I can tell you from experience that not only will your children love these books, but you will enjoy reading them too. Feel free to comment below to add one of your favorites to the list! {Oh, and I have also put together a summer podcast guide for mothers who love to read but for whom peace and quiet is a luxury they can’t afford.}
