When it's summer and all you want to do is chill by the pool. Luckily, it's still mild out there, so this is the perfect time to complete your summer reading early! Make sure to choose your book(s), begin reading, and complete packets/projects! Don't wait until the last minute!
I finished reading Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan and loved every minute of it! While in the Human World, the story is set in Boston, my favorite city. The adventure takes you to many of the 9 Worlds to meet many memorable characters. Magnus Chase is your typical teenager (except that he is a demigod) with a sarcastic sense of humor that makes it funny. I especially liked Rick Riordan's descriptions of his characters, adding another element to the Norse Gods. Thor is a bit different than how he is portrayed in the movie franchise! Check it out: you don't want to miss this exciting adventure this summer!
Are you in grades 3-5 and looking for a good summer read? Try Time for Andrew by Mary Downing Hahn! I just read this cool time travel / ghost story about an 11 year old boy who trades places with his ancestor from 1910 who looks exactly like him! I recommend this entertaining book (don't worry, it's suspenseful, not scary!) This is also on the 3/4th grade Battle of the Books list for 2016/17!

Happy Summer! While you are out enjoying the beautiful sunshine, be sure to bring with you a good book! One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to sit on the beach by the ocean and read a book by one of my favorite authors! Need some suggestions? Click on your grade level above to access your summer reading list! Why not get your summer reading project done early? On your grade's page, you will find pictures of the book covers that link to book trailers! If you find an author you like, below the cover is a link to their website which includes other books they have written. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or need help finding a book firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to use the school library over the summer, just send me an email request and I will meet you there! Check back on this site for my blogs on fun summer reads. Feel free to share what your reading too! Have a great summer!
