BCSD Librarians Recommend Summer Reading Lists from ALA Association for Library Service to Children

  • The book selections below are suggestions to parents for their students to read over the summer vacation.  Students should be allowed free choice when choosing their reading materials to create excitement and interest in reading.  Research shows that students who read just 4 books over the summer maintain reading achievement or even progress.  Encourage your student to read each day for as little as 20 minutes.   Make it a family event by going to the library and checking out books, audio books or graphic novels to read with your students. Below are recommended summer reading lists from the ALA Association for Library Service to Children by grade level for parents to help select books for their students. These books can be found at your local Cuyahoga County Library branch or most book stores.
