The Best Summer Books for Kids
To us, summer is all about sweltering humid days, thunderstorms, beach vacations, exploring creeks and nature trails, camping out, and visiting air conditioned museums and movie theaters. It’s also about having extra time to snuggle up with a good book and explore new worlds together.
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite summer books below. These are all books from our shelves, most of which we’ve read over and over again. Please share your favorites with us so we can add them to our list.
While you’re here, be sure to add your family friendly links below so we can check out your blog.
