Summer Reading Grades 6-8

Here at BookPeople, we believe that there is nothing better to do on a lazy summer day than to dig into a great book. And that’s why we have partnered with AISD for the Five Book Dive Summer Reading Challenge for readers grades K-12. 

How to get started: Come to BookPeople to pick up a summer reading bookmark for your age level. (Bookmarks will be available by the end of the school year.) You are going to want to hang on to this because it’s also your reading tracking form that you’re going to use all summer and turn back in to us before school starts.

What you get to read: Feel free to explore this list of recommended books for grades K-12 in English, and K-5 in Spanish. The whole point of the Five Book Dive is to encourage reading for pleasure, so you get to read 5 self-selected books to complete this challenge. To explore the whole list, visit 5bookdive.org!
