Summer Reading

I love to read and was super excited to learn that Cassie from Funky in Fourth was having a summer reading linky party. There are so many great books to read that it can be a bit overwhelming, so I love how Cassie divided her books into different categories.
I am currently reading Rigorous Reading and have been enjoying the combination of old, new and borrowed strategies. The QR Reader links to videos that provide further information on strategies.They are very helpful. Reading in the Wild is a book that provides strategies to encourage lifelong reading habits. A total must read.
There is even a current book study going on. Visit Think, Wonder, & Teach to get more info.

Ooo... my favorite category. Children's literature is the best. Here are some that I want to get to this summer.

I obviously read everything Wendie writes (the other half of 2 Smart Wenches). She has Rain Shadow coming in July. I am so looking forward to reading it.

I am a huge fan of miniature gardens. I can spend tons of time creating and admiring these little worlds.
My sister-in-law Christie recommended Buddha's Brain as a good read. The cover is just lovely and who doesn't want happiness, love, and wisdom in their life.


  1. Thanks for linking up! I am currently reading Wonder and I LOVE it! It will be one of my read alouds next year and I haven't even finished reading it yet!!

    1. I am feeling the pressure to complete my Summer Reading list before my brain starts focusing on school work. Thanks for sharing Cassie.
