The English Department at St. George’s is committed to promoting reading as a crucial skill in the development of our students. Part of our program is summer reading. Below are the lists for each grade. Not only do these lists give each student a guided reading experience for the summer, they also allow for some common reading experiences for all the students. We hope you enjoy a summer filled with good books!
Summer Reading Book Lists 2021
“It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.”
– Katherine Paterson
“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”
