Dear AWS Parents,
Summer is such a wonderful time for informal learning and reading, where our children can freely deep dive into the topics, activities, and stories that capture their great interests and imaginations. What follows is a list of of non-required summer reading suggestions for our rising Preschool to Fifth Grade students. Many of these may serve as perfect launchpads for a summer of learning, creation, and imagination. I hope you consider sharing these titles with your children through daily read-alouds and conversations, as this is one of the most proven ways for parents to encourage academic success.
Additionally, there are many summer reading events planned at our local public libraries, and they themselves are great resources for reading recommendations, as well. Here are links to the children’s programming for several local libraries:
If you have any questions regarding reading opportunities, suggestions, or activities, never hesitate to e-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for a great year of reading and learning. We’ll be excited to reopen the library in August.
All the best,
Library Media Specialist
