Summer Reading: Kids Book Club


It’s August, so it’s no surprise that:

1) it feels like it’s 1,000 degrees outside


2) it feels like it’s been 1,000 days since school let out for the summer!  

If you are like our families, you have vacationed, camped, day camped, swam and generally worn yourselves out “summering”!   Last week we featured some fun indoor activities to keep your kids entertained in the dog days of summer, but this week we are switching it up and bit! 

Whether you are headed to the beach, about to tackle ANOTHER road trip or are just tired and ready to chill on the couch for a few hours, we have the perfect summer reading list for your kiddos!  Recommended by the kids in our own LECPTA Book Club, these books are sure to keep your kids entertained over the LONG dog days of summer.
