Top Summer Reading List

Now that school is over and the weather is starting to get nice out, it’s the perfect time for parents to have their children reading over the summer to sharpen their minds and reading skills. There are many opportunities to pick up a good book and read. If you are planning a day trip, children can read while they are in the car, on a train or a bus. This will allow the children to have some reading time before they get to their destination. If you are sitting by the pool or relaxing at the beach, that is a perfect opportunity to do some reading and the Brooklyn Public Library has created a list of five top books to read during the summer.
