If it hasn’t already, the school year is nearly over here in the States, the weather is warmer, and summer is nearly upon us. Wondering what to do with the kids over the summer break? The first answer I would give is to get ourside, explore, travel and spend quality time together! But another thing that is always on parents minds is the dreaded “summer slide” where kids backslide on reading habits. The following is a group of different booklists that will give parents resources and “ammo” for providing interesting, fun and inspiring books to keep their kids in step with healthy reading habits.

School will soon be out and our youngsters will settle into a new summer routine of sleeping in and hopefully doing some exploring and discovering. With the hectic days of summer just beginning, oftentimes one of the first habit to go by the wayside is the habit of daily reading.

Reading is always an important part of our children’s lives no matter what time of year it is so I decided to wrap my knowledge of fun kidlit books and activities up with my experience as one of the co-founders of the very successful Multicultural Children’s Book Day and create a unique resource for parents who are looking for creative ways to keep their kids reading this summer. Reading is important, but so is helping our young readers learn about other cultures, religions and traditions through the pages of these books. Here are some great booklists and resources that I have created over the years at Jump Into a Book that will not only give parents and readers great ideas on diverse kids’ books, but fun activities related to books that will bring stories to life!
