Summer Reading for Children

If you will have young ones at home this summer, encourage them to read! It helps build their vocabulary and critical thinking skills, and keeps them focused on academic habits so they will be ready for the next school year.

If your children are old enough to read independently, they are sure to enjoy the summer reading program at your local public library. Kids keep track of how many books they've read, and earn prizes and recognition. If you have infants and toddlers, reading a book aloud to them can encourage development of their speaking skills and cognitive abilities.

Here are some picture books that have just been added to the children's literature collection at the NCC Libraries.
