Summer Reading for Elementary Schools 2021
We all look forward to a summer filled with family, friends, fun and READING! The following book list is suggested reading for this summer. Many of these titles are available on both our eBook platforms - MackinVIA & Tumblebooks - which is denoted with a "T" for Tumblebooks and an "M" for MackinVIA.
Your child should choose a book that is interesting and at a comfortable reading level; too many unknown words may lead to frustration. If your child is interested in a difficult book, partner-read or read it aloud. If the book is too easy, read it anyway to build fluency and confidence. If the listed book is not in your library, look for another book by the same author. Most of these authors have written other good books. Most titles listed are available in paperback format, and some are eBooks!
As you read, encourage your child to ask questions, make predictions, and relate the story to his/her own life. Remember to visit your local public library and to participate in their wonderful summer reading programs as well!
