I thought I’d share some of the books we’ve been enjoying reading this Summer. It is such a wonderful time of year, with the kids being off for school break, July 4th, the beach, blowing bubbles, sidewalk chalk, sunny days, fresh produce and ice cream cones! Even though summer isn’t my very favorite season of all, I do love the fun stuff we get to do and I try to appreciate all the differences each season offers us.  Some of these books we own and others we checked out from the library…we LOVE the library! I have linked to Amazon for each book, so you can see what it looks like and the description of each book. They were all great reads for Preschool and Elementary ages.
