Books for Fun

Book Adventure!
Click on Book Adventure (above)!  "A great tool to empower kids to find books to read all summer long! Kids select their grade (K-8), then decide whether they want to read books at their grade level, below their grade level, or challenge themselves by reading more difficult books. Next, kids choose whether they want to read fiction or nonfiction or both, and then select the type of books they want to read from a list of 37 categories." -School Library Journal-
