Choosing Summer Reading

May 31, 2012

Bank Street School for Children students choose books for summer reading, 2012

Check out Lisa’s 2009 EarlyWord post Summer Reading? Good! Assigned Reading? Bad for her take on summer reading.  We will soon add her 2012 summer reading list for all reading levels as well as her 2013 Mock Newbery and Mock Printz lists.  For last year’s Bank Street summer reading list, as well as a bunch of other reading lists, click here.

In case you can’t wait for Lisa’s updated list, here are some other resources to get you started on a great summer of reading:

NYPL – book lists for babies to adults, as well as a book list of Spanish language titles

New York State – a reading list for children of all ages; titles focus on the history, culture, and diversity of New York State (additional titles with content not focused on NY state, click here)

Texas Library Association – reading lists for children as young as 2 to adults

Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge – an interactive way for kids to keep track of what they read and get rewards; for children up to age 12

Reading Rockets – the summer reading page is chock full of information for parents, teachers, librarians; features themed book lists (e.g. baseball, vacation) and includes links to book lists from other sources such as The Horn Book.

Young Adult Library Services Association – 100 Super Summer Reads for Teens; lighter fare for leisure reading

Graphic Novels for Summer Reading – for kids of all ages, as compiled by ReadKiddoRead

A fascinating flow chart for high school summer reading.  Just follow the arrows!
