2020 Summer Reading Lists

ALSC's Quicklists Consulting Committee has updated our Summer Reading Lists with new and exciting titles!

The lists are full of book titles to keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer. Four Summer Reading book lists are available for Birth-Preschool and grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Each list is available here to download for free. The back panel can be edited to include your library's contact information. Although many libraries are physically closed due to COVID-19, some of these titles may be available as digital downloads for children and families to enjoy. 

Titles on the 2020 Summer Reading Lists were compiled and annotated by members of ALSC’s Quicklists Consulting Committee. ALSC booklists are created as a resource for children's librarians to share with patrons. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to explore these titles to find resources that may match or spark their child's interest.
