What Will Your Kids Be Reading This Summer?

Looking for titles to add to the stack of summer reads for your 8- to 12-year-old?  Come to a panel this Monday, June 4, at 7pm at the main branch of the Somerville Public Library and listen to me and the other panelists riff on great summer reads, old and new. There will be cool bookish swag from the fine folks at Candlewick, and book lists from each of the panelists (homeschooler Tammy McKanan and Horn Book reviewer Cindy Ritter) for you to take home at the end of the evening’s discussion. My list will include my own favorites from deep time (getting deeper all the time!), titles my family enjoyed together, as read alouds or audiobooks during our “read together” years, and books my son is enjoying now as a 12-year-old bookworm. Can’t make the panel? No worries. I’ll be posting my own list here after June 5.
