Summer Reading Booklists for Pre-K-8th Grade

There’s still two weeks left to complete your summer reading challenge! Looking for some book recommendations to keep your kids motivated and interested in the final days of summer? Check out these curated booklists from ALSC (Association for Library Services to Children)!

“These lists are full of book titles to keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer. Four Summer Reading lists are available for birth-preschool and grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Each list is available here to download for free. Titles on the 2023 Summer Reading Lists were compiled and annotated by members of ALSC’s Quicklists Consulting Committee. ALSC reading lists are created as a resource for children’s librarians to share with patrons. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to explore these titles to find resources that may match or spark their child’s interest.”
