Summer is here and we hope these are the best 62 days of your year! To help engage you in some good reading, the following is a list of chapter books about summer vacations and adventures with new and favorite book characters.

Former first lady, Barbara Bush, passed away this week at the age of 92. She, and Abigail Adams, were the only first ladies to be a wife and mother to a president of the United States. Mrs. Bush was very dedicated to public service and literacy projects. The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy provides access to and choice of educational opportunities to young children and their parents. Children and parents in all 50 states have benefited from these family literacy programs.
