Summer Reading Suggestions for Our Middle and High School Students

I wrote this little article for our May '13 Parent Newsletter and I thought I'd share it here:

"Last month we shared three interesting articles about the importance of books and reading in the lives of your children.

This month? Summer reading lists, of course! Feel free to  nudge your child toward these great websites and lists:

Books that Guys Read from Guys Read

Great Page Turners and Great Advanced Reads from Read Kiddo Read

Teen Books at Barnes & Noble Teen

Last but not least, check out our Books and Reading LibGuide for lots of reading suggestions.

Happy reading!

P. S. You can encourage your child to email Ms. Lindsay with fiction recommendations for the fall!"

This touched my heart.
