Memorial Day marks the start of summer, and we have a sunny assortment of books to celebrate!
- Growing Season (Sterling) celebrates the changes two best friends experience over a summer apart.
- Sea Glass Summer (Candlewick) chronicles a boy’s summer by the sea and his search for the sea’s secrets.
- Hello Summer! (Holiday House) takes readers on a visit to blooming gardens, colorful berry patches, ponds and pools, and fireflies and fireworks.
Here’s how you can win these books: Submit a comment to this blog and share one word that you associate with summer. It can be a place, a thing, a feeling, or a descriptive word; anything goes. Send your comment by June 13 to be included in our random drawing. Good luck!
Here are some great freebies for helping students and families make the most of summer. Share them with students’ families and take advantage of them yourself!
Students can Seuss-ify their summers with the Dr. Seuss Word Challenge. The challenge is all about having kids read as many words as they can and adding them to the Word Counter-Upper. The goal is 250 million words! Join the challenge and get tracking at wordchallenge.seussville.com.
The word that I associate most with summer is promise. Summer holds so much promise for adventure, learning, fun, and freedom. I can’t wait!
