Summer Reading for Kids!

Mr. Pish is bored
I’m so bored. I wish I had a book to read!

Summertime is upon us, and you know what that means. The kids are out of school and you’re going to be hearing these words a lot:

I’m sooo bored!

Once you’ve made the pilgrimage to Disneyland and a few trips to the pool, it’s pretty much over. That isn’t gonna save you.

Books can keep them entertained and maintain their reading skills for the upcoming school year. Making a summer reading list is a great idea, but why go schlepping to the library to wrestle with another mom over the last dog-eared copy of Where’s Waldo when there are so many great indie books for kids?

If you have a book for kids from Pre-K to Middle Grade, put the title, author, and Amazon link in the comments! We will convert your link to a clickable book cover. Do not attempt to insert an image in comments on your own.

Remember, without books, you may spend your summer hearing things like, “I thought an umbrella would work like a parachute.”

  4. I would never have dared say I was bored! My mother would have had a fit and found a hundred jobs for me to do. The only recourse was to sneak off in to the bush (we live in Africa) and make my own adventures. I never had time to be bored. I could read, but didn’t often have the time: too much else to do and explore.
