My boys love reading and I don’t think you should give up books just because it is the summer.
Once summer hits, we scale back our regular schedule and go to a lighter one. I make sure to cover the basics so that I have more time to incorporate the fun stuff we didn’t get to during the year.
This frees up their afternoons to do as they so please. No matter what time of the year it is, my boys are always into books. We make a trip to the library every 2 weeks and always have 30+ books checked out.

Here are some of our favourite summer reading books, well actually they would be great for anytime of the year.
My son loves reading books that are in a series, if he finds a good book, he never wants it to end.
He just finished the How to Train Your Dragon Series which he loved and now despises the movie. He wants the movies to stick to the book closely.
Some great classics that M1 enjoyed are Call of the Wild and White Fang from Jack London.
He loved the historical novel Rifles for Watie, he’s a history nut and loves any books about boys and war.
His favourite author is Roald Dahl since his books are full of humour.
Did I mention how much I love the library.
What about you, what are your children’s favourite books?
