Summer reading suggestions do not intend to burden students during a time best spent with friends and family. Rather, summer reading attempts to enhance summer break, by showing students how to spend their time wisely.
Indeed, many of us are guilty of squandering precious leisure time by sleeping in too late, watching television, and playing video games. Hopefully, models such as Bilbo Baggins and Benjamin Franklin inspire our students to employ their summers learning rewarding skills, practicing virtuous habits, and going on grand adventures.
ACA’s suggested summer reading list contains high-quality reading material that will prepare your child for the coming school year. We recommend that parents pre-read texts to determine what they feel is appropriate for their child’s development – and what they will enjoy! There is no required summer reading this year.
