My Summer Reading List

WOTD: Summer Reading List

One of the most important jobs an author has is reading. Now that school is out, my kids and I will be able to do lots of that.

I’ve decided to post a running list of the books I read (or re-read) during summer vacation. They’ll include books for all ages; I’ll add to it each time I finish reading one.

I’d love to hear what you’re reading! If you really like it (and I haven’t already read it), I’ll add it to my reading list, too.

Summer Book Fun for Kids

Summer vacation is just days away and I hope you’re planning to read lots and lots of books!

Coincidentally, I know of the PERFECT picture book title for this time of year. It’s a lively, rhythmic tale full of culture, community, and summertime fun!
