I am often asked by parents for a list of recommended books for their child to read during the summer. Our Jefferson County Library Cooperative is a great source for these books. I don’t know if you know it, but if you have a library card (and yes, it is FREE) you can go online and order books from all over the library cooperative and find most any books you could imagine. Then, they will send it to your local library. There are 40 libraries in this cooperative, so, I know one is near your home.
These are just some of my favorites:
The Tale of Despereaux: Being the Story of a Mouse, a Princess, Some Soup, and a Spool of Thread by Kate Dicamillo and Timothy B. Ering
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh (Aladdin Fantasy) by Robert C. O’Brien and Zena Bernstein
Dear Mr. Henshaw (Avon Camelot Books)by Beverly Cleary and Paul O. Zelinsky
Chasing Vermeer (Edgar Allen Poe Award. Best Juvenile (Awards)) by Blue Balliett and Brett Helquist
