He Reads/She Reads

July/August 2013

There's nothing like a great book and a cool spot to read on those lazy days of summer. For those who need a little inspiration here is a list of kid-tested, librarian-approved titles. The list is divided by age, for both boys and girls to make picking a sure bet a little easier. Please feel free to read recklessly and enjoy ALL the books on the list. And do remember that talking about favorite books is what librarians love most so ask us for more!
