5 Summer Books for Young Readers


Summer is for fun, but we also try to avoid summer reading loss. My little one is going into Kindergarten but he is already reading Pre-K and K books (with a little help). We decided to challenge him with some harder books and some new stories that he has not heard before. Here are 5 summer books that are good for young readers this summer.

Book 1- Peri and Her Fungi

Peri’s grandma has recently gotten very sick. Peri wants to heal and cure her grandma the only way she believes in—the natural way. Between trying to save her local forest from deforestation and securing an organic fungi remedy for her grandma, time is surely against her. Can she save her grandma and the forest before time runs out? Mother Nature says yes.

Book 2- Archer Otters: Megalodon Outbreak

When the otter community’s food supply suddenly becomes scarce, the Archer Otter trio is forced to explore the dangerous depths of the sea.

Book 3- Peri and Her Plant

Making the world a greener place is not an easy task, but after Peri finds friendship in an unexpected gift, opportunities begin to sprout. Together, Peri, Lavie, and Snotty will heal the Earth. Will you join them?

“From the Pocket of an Overcoat” tells the story of an affable cat, Max Buckles, through his adventure of finding a new home and family – and being loved for who he is. He goes from the cozy overcoat pocket of Sally in the city, to the country with Farmer Buckles and his other animals, including his four dogs – Sam, Tots, Scotty, and Junior Buckles. Along the way, he discovers a true sense of belonging within his new family. As told through the journey of Max the cat, this is a story about self-identity, acceptance, animal rescue and adoption.

Book 5- The Unsinkable Gus Davis

Gus Davis is a French bulldog who thinks he can do anything—even swim. Bean is Gus’s human best friend who thinks bulldogs aren’t designed for the water.

Who is right? It turns out, they both are!

All it takes is a persistent bulldog and a creative human friend to prove that, with a little practice and adaptation, anything is possible. The Unsinkable Gus Davis is a playful story about figuring things out, staying safe around water, and laughing along the way!
