The Suggested Summer Reading Lists are lists of books that your children may enjoy.
The administrators, teachers and staff of the East Baton Rouge Parish School System encourage parents to read to and with their children each day during the summer vacation. The more children read, the better readers they become. In reading as in many other areas, practice makes a difference.
We encourage you to obtain a library card for your children at your local public library. Sign them up for the Summer Reading Club and visit the library often with your children. We recommend that your children read at least 10 books during the summer months. Children are encouraged to choose from the list for the grade they will enter in the fall.

Tips for Parents of Middle Schoolers
Summer reading lists are provided to give students a variety of books to consider for reading in the summer. Some middle schools have required reading lists. Check with your child’s school to find out if they have one and to obtain a copy. Public libraries also have copies of most schools’ lists.
The need for encouragement and support in reading does not end when children leave elementary school. Middle school age students need encouragement from parents and/or other family members to continue reading and improving their skills. More reading leads to improvement in reading proficiency and greater proficiency leads to increased enjoyment of reading.
Make reading with or reading aloud to your children a fun part of your family’s day!
