Whilst you are spending your days (I’m assuming) swimming at the beach, sliding down water slides or turning up the air-conditioning full blast, it’s winter here. Here in Australia’s ‘sunshine state’, our winter mainly consists of weather that is so cold that it makes not wearing a jacket impossible, but not cold enough that it snows. Which, in my personal opinion, makes winter worthless. Next week I’m going to New Zealand with my school in search of snow, but until then, I’m pretending it’s summer here, too.
So, to get in the ‘summery’ mood, (whilst I huddle in my flannel pajamas and Ugg boots pretending it’s not cold), here’s my list of 18 Fun Summer Reading Ideas for Kids, Teens and Adults.
They’re perfect to keep kids busy on a long road trip, for you to flip through on a beach lounger whilst sipping something cold, or, use as an alternative when the TV goes on the fritz. Some of them are ‘oldies but goodies’, some of them are about summer and summer camps, and some of them are just plain read-year-long awesome. Perhaps your kid is refusing to read the books on their school ‘recommended summer reading’ list (those books are all boring, anyway), but you just want them to read something during the break? Try one of the books from this list.
Happy Summer, everyone!
