Mrs. Laura Bush's Recommended Summer Reading List: Intermediate Readers

June 7, 2018 by Sarah Boynton Gibbons
Check out Mrs Laura Bush's favorite books for students this summer.

"Reading is important to success in school. If you can read, you can read every subject. No matter what you want to be when you grow up--a doctor, a lawyer, a Senator, an artist, or a teacher--reading will help you reach your goal." -Mrs. Laura Bush

Continuing to read during the summer months is critical, especially for independent and intermediate readers. Summer reading not only allows students to expand their imagination, but it significantly prepares them for the next school year ahead. 

Summertime is a great moment to encourage students to continue exploring new books. Not sure where to begin? Join the Laura Bush Foundation’s summer reading challenge of reading 30 minutes each day and get started with one of Mrs. Laura Bush’s favorite books for intermediate readers:

Because of Winn Dixie by kate DiCamillo

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

Matilda by Roald Dahl

Wonder by R.J. Palacio

The Giver by Lois Lowr

Stay tuned this summer as we share more of Mrs. Bush’s summer reading list. Happy Reading!
