Kids Summer Reading List Part 1

Whether it’s a rainy day, or on the beach or in the park, keep your kids’ minds engaged and away from the screens for a while. Part 1 of our favourite children’s books.

Summer days are meant for playing and spending time outdoors. It’s easy to get lost in the hours of sunshine and fresh air.

Reading books may not be the first activity that comes to mind in the summer but it is no less important. Our families read every day, news headlines, Tweets, Facebook & Instagram captions, sure, but over these last few difficult months our concentration has understandably been shaken, and reading full-page books can be difficult.

It can be especially difficult for children with many distractions particularly with the amount of time they spend in front of a screen. Sometimes it’s good to get back to the classics and open a good book. We have put together a list of some of our favorite books and book series with Part 1 focusing on younger readers.

  1. Little Bear, by Else Holmelund Minarik & Maurice Sendak. This heartwarming and classic book series invokes a nostalgic era. Little Bear’s tales with family and friends are easy to read and the illustrations are still as beautiful as ever.
