3rd Grade Suggested Summer Reading List 2017
The reading level of the books suggested varies. Have your child read a page of the book aloud to you to see if it is a good fit. If they struggle with more than a few words on the page, it is probably too difficult, but the book would still be a great book
to read aloud to your child.
