Summer reading

June 30, 2014

This summer I’m trying to keep up with my 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter.

We’re reading recent Newberry Medal winners (fiction) and Sibert Award winners (non-fiction).

So far we’ve read:

  • Parrots Over Puerto Rico
  • The One and Only Ivan
  • Bomb : the Race to Build and Steal the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon
  • Dead End in Norvelt
  • Balloons Over Broadway : the True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy’s Parade

We’re doing mini family book clubs complete with grape juice and appetizers. It’s not typical beach reading, but I’ve been impressed with how compelling these kids’ books can be.
