Summer Reading 2017

When you are relaxing poolside, sunbathing at the beach, or in between innings at the ball game....don't forget to bring along a great book!  Reading over the summer is important to keep your mind sharp and to keep your imagination alive through the hot summer months away from school.

Not all things pink are… pretty.

   In My Heart by Molly Bany

A story about family and the love we hold for one another. “Who is always in that great big heart of yours?”

   Ling and Ting; Not Exactly the Same by Grace Lin

Ling and Ting are identical twins that people think are exactly the same, but time and again they prove to be different.

Time Warp Trio: The Knights of the Kitchen Table by Jon Scieszka
