Now as the summer is winding down, it’s time to start to get back into the swing of things for school. This includes reading. You may have played your video games, used your tablets or kindles this summer but, have you done any reading this summer? If you haven’t now is the time to get back into the swing of things and do some reading. If you did not have a reading list of books to read over the summer, the Brooklyn Library has provided a few good books to get you on your way for Back to School time.
Miss Nelson is Back by Harry Allard: When their teacher has to go away for a week, the kids in Room 207 plan to “really act up.”
Back to School by Meredith Badger: Chloe is afraid she is not smart enough to have moved up into a new school and takes it out on her best friend, Dani.
Back to School, Tortoise by Lucy M. George: Summer is over and Tortoise must summon the courage to go back to school.
Pinky Dinky Doo: Back to School is Cool! by Jim Jinkins: When her little brother Tyler is nervous about his first day of school, Pinky Dinky Doo tells him a story about the time she and her friends had real-ly bad hair days when school pictures were scheduled.
Darth Paper Strikes Backs by Tom Angleberger: Harvey, upset when his Darth Paper finger puppet brings humilia-tion, gets Dwight suspended, but Origami Yoda asks Tommy and Kellan, now in seventh grade, to make a new casefile to persuade the School Board to reinstate Dwight.
Lionel at School by Stephen Krensky: Lionel’s many schoolrelated adventures include a nervous Back-to-School night with his parents, the welcoming of a new classmate, a sister who doesn’t seem to recognize him, and an experiment with time.
These are just a few recommendations. Enjoy and happy reading!
