Summer is the perfect time to discover the love for new and interesting books to read! To help children and their families find books that children can read successfully because they are at this level, the Parklawn literacy team encourages parents to check out the suggested reading list that matches your child’s reading level, which was sent home in your child’s end of year progress report. Many of these books are available for checkout at the local library.
