This summer, dream big and read!

Summer is a magical time when you’re a kid. I have fond memories of riding my bike to the pool each day, swimming for two hours, then stopping at the library to choose a book or two. The rest of the day was spent reading, so that I could do it all again the next day. The library summer reading program was the best: I earned prizes for something I loved to do.

This year the Collaborative Summer Library Program has selected the theme of Dream Big: Read! for its public-library members. The CSLP website has a bibliography of books that fit this theme of dreaming, sleeping, and things that happen in the night. Be sure to check it out. But in the meantime, here are a few Capstone titles that fill the bill.

For the young listener and beginning reader:

Nap Time for Kitty by Michael Dahl

The Scary Night by Anastasia Suen

The Noisy Night by Gwendolyn Hooks

For early readers:

Katie Goes Camping by Fran Manushkin

A Nervous Night by Fran Manushkin

The Kylie Jean series by Marci Peschke ~ no one dreams bigger than Kylie Jean!

For graphic novel lovers:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a graphic retelling of William Shakespeare's play

For those who want a little fright in their night:

The Midnight Witches by Roberto Pavanello

Full Moon Horror by Jason Strange
