First Grade 2017 Summer Reading List

In order to retain the skills learned in Kindergarten, your child should continue to read and write over the summer. Below you will find a list of books. This is just a suggested list. You and your child can take turns reading these books (and others) throughout the summer. Libraries also have their own reading lists, by grade, and I recommend that you take a look at these lists for more great reading fun! I really hope that you and your child will spend some time this summer in your local library exploring the thousands of amazing books you will find there. If you find an author you like... then look for more books by that author!
