Happy summer! Now that we are a few weeks into summer vacation, your kids may be looking for some books to add to their TBR pile. I know I am! I’m flying through my books, both kids and adult, and I’m always looking for new ones to add to my library list. These titles might be new releases or old favorites, but if I read a good review, my list grows! I hope this week’s edition of Kids’ Books to Remember will help your kids find some new ones to add to their lists, and maybe you, too, will find some books for your own TBR pile!

some links for mom and dad
As always, thank you for inviting me into your inbox. I write Red Canoe Reader, because I want to help moms, dads and kids learn about some great books, and to help kids become lifelong readers. I would really appreciate you sharing my site with your friends who are also looking for books for their kids, especially now that summer is here. I’ll be posting more titles to add to your kids’ lists frequently. Finally, I hope you’ll let me know what you think about Red Canoe, and about anything you’d like me to add to the site. Have a great weekend and Father’s Day!
