The List is out!

I don’t know if you’ve had an opportunity to check out this year’s summer reading list. If not, I hope you do soon. The list this year is a very robust list that considers a variety of texts; of literacies; of ways to engage with information. We’ve curated novels, picturebooks, graphic novels, coloring sheets, online short stories, short plays, fiction, novels in verse, poetry collections and nonfiction for young people. We really try to be diverse!!

While every book is read by atleast two people, not everyone on the team reads every book. We still want to read some of the other books! I asked everyone on the team what they still wanted to read and here’s what we said.

What are you looking forward to reading?
