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.

Happy reading!

This list has our topics for 2016, but you don’t have to stick to that, any family-friendly posts are welcome.

Our hosts will still share a themed selection each week.

    Thank you for this great list! I have an almost first-grader, and want to keep her reading through out the summer. Going to check out some of your recommendations on Amazon now 🙂
