We love books at our house. And the library. It’s not uncommon for us to make a trip and tell Joey, “Only 5 books today, because we have so many checked out already” and come home with 20 more.
This summer I want to share with you some of our favorite children’s books and authors. There will probably be a lot of familiar names, but hopefully you’ll find one or two that are new to you. I also tend toÂ gravitateÂ to books that are interesting for adults as well as children, like C.S. Lewis said,
“No book is really worth reading at age of ten which is not equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty.”
If you’re looking for ideas of what to read this summer or just looking for something new, perhaps these reading lists for kids would be helpful:
