With the “End of School Countdown” entering into its final days, my ‘tween has been busy creating a summer reading list. She has chosen to add books that she loved so much she will be reading them again, some that she never had the chance to finish, and others that have sparked her interest.
Sometimes we’ll read aloud together, other times she’ll bring the characters to life for us as she re-tells the stories. Her love for reading is strong, and I’m sure this list will grow quickly. Before it does, I’ll share with you what she has chosen…
#1. Scat by Carl Hiaasen
I’ve read Scat before, but I love it so much, I’m reading it again! I chose this book because it is a mystery (I love mysteries!). Nick and Marta try to find out where Mrs. Starch disappeared to after a school field trip.
#2. A dog’s Way Home by Bobbie Pyron
Abby and Tam get separated when the family is involved in a car accident. This book was hard to read because of how sad and emotional it was. Definitely a good read, just be sure to make it to the end!
