Summer reading is a great way to avoid the summer “slide” with your kids.
And there’s no better way to get them into a book than to choose one that’s summer-themed!
Today I’m featuring 50 summer books for kids that feature familiar characters, funny storylines, and gorgeous illustrations.
After all, when a story is engaging, kids are more likely to feel interested in what happens.
Plus, they’re more likely to reread them on their own – which is one of the best ways to build a love of reading.
These children’s books about summer make wonderful choices for an upcoming family road trip, book club, or summer reading program.
Read on to see the full list.
