Best Summer Reads for Kids
n Lee County Library Director Jan Willis and his staff offer these suggestions for summer reading:
Studies show that kids who read during the summer maintain their accomplishments in school once classes begin again.
But don’t tell your own kids that!
From nurturing a lifelong love for reading in your preschool-age children to reaching the teen students in your family, the key is often finding the right book that makes them want to read the next page. Here are some of our favorite summer reads at the Lee County Library!
