During the summer we continue to be a community of readers: relaxing with new stories and uncovering treasures. You must read at least FOUR books over the summer. Complete the two required readings below and the reading organizer for each book, and read at least two other books of your choice. Record all your readings in the reading log (click here).
Be prepared to bring copies of American Born Chinese,The Giver, the completed reading organizers, and your reading log that lists the works that you have read to School in the fall.
