Dear Parents,

Below you will find a “Rising 7th Grade Suggested Reading” list.  The books listed are only suggested reading and are not required reading by any means.  I encourage you to have your child read a few of these wonderful books during the summer.  Remember, the only way to become a better reader is to READ!!!!

Have a great summer and keep reading!
