Summer Reading Ideas and Resources

It is never too early to begin summer reading and I wanted to give you time to plan what activities you might have your child participate in over the summer. Below are a few resources that might help you get started - some start this week and some start at the end of the month. You can click on the links to the articles or click on the photos to get more information. The Douglas County Public library flier doesn't have a link up yet but the others do. I will remind of this post again in a couple of weeks.
