A Classic

by J. Patrick Lewis

A Children's book is a classic
If at six, excitedly
You read it to another kid
Who just turned sixty-three.

Whether you are six or sixty-three, we hope that you will share books together. Enjoy choosing books, reading aloud as a family, or listening to an audio book. These lists will help you select some titles and authors.

The Horn Book Magazine has published an informative guide that recommends the newest and best books for all ages that would be great summer reading. The Horn Book Magazine Summer Reading Guide
