But on a literary note: my kids and I are putting together our summer reading lists. Have you made yours? Summer is a great time to turn off the TV, find some shade, and conquer that stack of books you've always wanted to read. I'm planning on reading North and South (British not Southern US) and Crash ( Jerry Spinelli- my 6th grader wants me to read it because as she says, "It's sooooooo good, Mom.")
What's on your list? If you need suggestions, there are great resources out there:
The American Association of Librarians website
Look up book award nominees: Newberry, Caldecott, Rebecca Caudill, Monarch etc..
Friends and family
Enjoy your summer reading. Maybe try some F. Scott Fitzgerald or some Ernest Hemingway in honor of our dear Max!
Have a great week!
