When my kids were young I loved all the summer book lists I could find for them. I knew I wouldn’t get through them all and that was ok. It was still fun to look through and pick some we thought would be favorites for each one of the kids. I hope Jenna’s list gives you more great ideas for summer reading for your kids!
