Summer Reading

Hello Families!
Summer is right around the corner!  It is a great idea to start summer with a solid reading plan.  Part of that plan should involve keeping your child reading to avoid the "summer slide!"  At St. Francis of Assisi, we put together packets with activities and resources to keep your child reading during the sunny months. I hope you find the information attached helpful. If you have any questions, please let us know!

Common Sense Media
These must-read books are classics for a reason: they tell compelling stories with unforgettable characters. Whether they're in middle school or high school or just getting started on chapter books, kids, tweens, and teens can use this list to get a jump start on the year ahead. And parents can use it to learn more about the books teachers are assigning their kids over the summer and throughout the school year.
The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC)
The lists are full of book titles to keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer.  Four Summer Reading lists are available for birth-preschool and grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Each list is available here to download for free. Titles on the 2022 Summer Reading Lists were compiled and annotated by members of ALSC’s Quicklists Consulting Committee. ALSC reading lists are created as a resource for children's librarians to share with patrons. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to explore these titles to find resources that may match or spark their child's interest -- find it here:
