Recommended Summer Reading Lists

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Looking for some of the best in children´s literature? The lists here will lead you and your children into wonderful worlds of fantasy, history, and humor.

There are many lists of books recommended for children. I add mine own here as a beginning point. It is not intended as a definitive list of children´s literature. It does not feature the latest greatest book. Instead these are books that may have wone awards, may have been overlooked, but all have been "hits" with my students.

The following books are especially recommended for kindergarten and first grade students:


  • Bamboozled, by Legge
  • Bit By Bit, by Sanfield

  • Three Cool Kids, by Emberley
  • Three Star Billy, by Hutchins

The following books are especially recommended for second and third grade students:
