Well the kids finished another year and they are so excited for the summer. I can’t blame them I like the summer too. There is just something about the warmth, the sun, and the freedom. You just got to love summer!!
Well that being said, there are going to be times during the summer where they will be bored, or it’s raining, or it’s just too dang hot to go outside. Well to keep them out of my hair and to keep them “engaged” we came up with their lists for the summer.
My daughter who is 11 (and going on 20 or so she thinks…lol) has picked out some great books to read:
Alice in Wonderland – by Lewis Carroll
Animal Farm – by George Orwell
Because of Winn Dixie – by Kate DiCamillo
War Horse – by Michael Morpurgo
My son the sci-fi nut (like me) who is 13 has also picked out some great ones as well:
Rama II – by Arthur C. Clarke
Starship Troopers – by Robert A. Heinlein
Stranger in a Strange Land – by Robert A. Heinlein
The Andromeda Strain – by Michael Crichton
Hope we might have put some books on your radar to read. ENJOY YOURSELVES AND HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!!!
