Great Summer Reads … By Kids, for Kids

The lazy days of summer are rapidly approaching. What better time for children to immerse themselves in books? Series can stretch over days and weeks. New genres can be explored. Books can be tucked into bags for vacations, camp, a trip to the beach, or to stay with grandparents.

This month, ReaderKidZ enlisted the help of some young reading friends around the country to come up with a list of great books. We have some suggestions of our own, but what better way to find a good book than to hear about it out of the mouths of the children who read them?

If you know young readers, tell them to come visit us here throughout May for some exciting book ideas from kids just like them. Feel free to add some great K-5 recommendations of your own!

Hi! I’m good friends w/ Lorrie Mawhinney in VT and was hoping to have my kids submit a couple of book reviews as well! We’ve read some gems this year and this is a great homeschooling project 🙂
How do we do it? 🙂

Hi Kristen,
Thanks for your interest. We’d love to know what books your kids recommend. You can put what they write in an email and send it to us at: readerkidz at readerkidz dot com. We’ll post it on a free day during the month. Tell them to check back daily to see when it is up.
Best, Stephanie
