Summer is a great way to relax and enjoy a few or a lot of new books. Since we love reading, I want to share with you these fun Summer Books for Early Elementary Kids!
We homeschool year round but go to a lighter schedule in the summer. This gives us the opportunity to spend an hour or two on school and then spend the rest of our day outside. Something that we love to do considering the hard winter we just had.
Keep reading to find this awesome summer reading list that you can add to your own! These books will get your kids more engaged and excited for all the summer lessons and activities you are planning to do!

For your younger children, these are my boys’ favorite books. The same books that I read with oldest, I’m now reading with my younger son who is heading into grade one.
Not so much reading but still fun, the first three on the list are a great way to get your children into books. I’ve spent hours following the clues, trying to find and being beaten by my son as we hunt for objects.
