For me, summer always meant two things: time at the pool, and time to read - not just books my teachers told me to read, but anything I wanted to read! Of course, many of those paperbacks went to the pool with me (I mean, a kid has to do something during periods of "adult only swim," right?). But I spent just as many hours hiding from those pesky younger siblings, up a tree or in the woods of the house across the street, losing myself in the adventures of Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, or journeying along with Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.
Of course, back to school means getting back into the reading habit. Or maybe you're lucky, and your kids never got out of it. In any event, there will be opportunities for "what did you do this summer" essays and "pick a book" free reading book reports. So hopefully you got some good reads in over the last few months.
And if you didn't, no worries! The bloggers below, assembled by Mother Daughter Book Reviews and Youth Literature Reviews, are more than willing to share their summer reading expertise.
