Top 10 Books Your Child Should Be Reading

Friday, August 18th, 2017

With school back in session, it’s the perfect time to begin some at home, family reading time! We can probably all remember days from our childhood when reading was not our favorite activity. Come on now, there were mud pies to be made, treasure hunts to be had, and cartoons to be enjoyed! But teachers far and wide, and year after year always encouraged reading  at home with parents. Thinking back, you probably had some favorite tales that kept you hooked until the end! After some rummaging ourselves, we’ve come up with some must-read literature for every age and grade level! Can you and your budding reader make it through these stories by the end of the school year?
