Children's Summer Reads (4-7yrs old)

Summer is half way over, and that is hard to believe. As I have said before, one of my favorite things about summer is being able to enjoy some great fiction books. I have fond memories from my childhood of lying on the beach and getting lost between the pages of a good book.

I thought I would share with you some of my favorites and hope that you all will share your favorites as well. This week I will share with you my favorites for Kindergarten through second grade. (All of these books are available from Veritas Press. Just give us a call, and we will be happy to help you.)
