I can't believe it's almost summer! Our school year ends next week and the pool opens just after that. Now I live for the pool in the summer but when I was a kid I usually spent lots of time reading or swimming at the beach. My local library had a great summer reading program and I was always so proud to earn a free book by the end of the summer.
Today I'm happy to share the Collaborative Summer Library Program with you! Kate DiCamllo is the CSLP Summer Reading Champion for 2016 and she's sharing her love of reading and libraries and summer which you can share with young readers in your life.
As you may know, Kate's book RAYMIE NIGHTINGALE was recently published! It makes a perfect summer read. Watch the live webcast where Kate talked about Raymie and her story with John Schu here. Also check out Kate's top ten reasons to join your library summer reading program and her recommended reading list for summer 2016. And here are some videos straight from Kate about summer reading.
Scholastic also put together a list of 50 Sensational Books of Summer and I was invited to recommend a book for their list. You'll have to hop on over to see what I think will make a great summer read! I would love to hear what summer books you recommend! Share in the comments!
