Grab a book and get reading with your child. PA’s Promise for Children has a recommendation for 12 hot, sunny and wonderful books about summer.
Print the list and take it to your local library. Your librarian can help you find the books on the list. Read the books with your child, then help your child circle the books as they’re read.
