Ah! Summer Reading Time: Check Out This Common Sense List

Schools are out (or coming down the home stretch) and soon long summer days will stretch out ahead of students.  There are lots of great things to do in the summer, but one of the best is having time to flop down on the front porch, on that hard bunk at camp, on a beach towel, or in bed at night with chirping crickets and distant lightning outside the window and just--read a good book.

Common Sense Media offers summer reading aplenty for kids from two to seventeen years old.  Divided into three main sections--ages 2 to 6, 7 to 12, and 13 to 17--the recommendations are subdivided into categories for each age group: bedtime stories, read-alouds, and beginning readers' books for the youngest; funny stories, fantasy and science fiction, coming-of-age-stories, and mysteries and adventures for the middle readers; and coming-of-age and classics for young adult readers.  There are familiar oldies-but-goodies and recent best-selling hits in these lists, with something for almost everyone.
