Archives - Kidsreads Newsletter for Parents

There is so much going on right now --- and coming up in the next few weeks --- that we here at can hardly handle it! For one thing, it's summer, and summer is always a reason to go a little crazy with excitement. It's warm! There's swimming! You and your kids can do cannonballs into a pool! (Not while anyone's reading, though --- that probably wouldn't go over so well.) And, with all the cool reads that are out there this season, how can anyone say no to an extra few minutes of poolside lounge time? You'll all be reading!

Before you know it, it'll be time for your kids to hit the pool with a stack of both new books and old favorites (if they haven't been already). We here at love JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH by Roald Dahl --- it's a classic! The book, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, is the latest Al's Book Club pick. You'll definitely want to read this one with your children.
