Suggestions for Summer Reading

It’s important for your child to read over the summer to prevent reading level loss! Experts tell us that reading at least 6 books during the summer months will help your child retain or improve his/her reading level. The following books are award winning books and will be the “Library Reading Contest” books for 2016-2017. Your child can get a head start on earning a gift card for reading at least 5 or more of them next year; Mrs. Potts, Barwise Librarian, will be reading them this summer also!
