How can we help children keep their minds engaged over the summer break? One of the best ways is by encouraging them to read.

There are a number of summer reading lists which you can find on Curriki. Here we mention a few of those.

Below is a link to a set of eight different reading lists for students in K-12. Each list is well annotated and like a mini book talk – engaging and hooking to even the most reluctant reader. This resource even includes a list for boys who are reluctant readers.
