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 summers learning rewarding skills, practicing virtuous habits, and going on grand adventures.
