Reading has a great impact on students! This summer, help your child stay focused by reading to them, with them, or indepently! At Freedom Intermediate School, we feel that giving students choice in what they read is highly important and helps to make reading more enjoyable for students! Often we are asked for book recommendations. Here is a list of this year’s upcoming Volunteer State Book Nominees. These books have been chosen by a group of library media specialists in Tennessee as some of the best literature for grades 3-6. If students read at least three of the books by May of next year, they will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite! I hope this list is helpful to you as you help your child select wonderful books to read this summer! Also, don’t forget to visit the Williamson County Public Library and sign up for their summer reading program! They will host many wonderful programs as well as offer prizes for summer reading! Happy Summer!
