Beat Summer Slide — Build a Home Library for Your Child!
Beat the summer slide by building a top-notch home library for your kids & teens with our hand-picked recommendations!
Every two years, the Children’s Book Council (CBC), the American Library Association,
and the Association for Library Service to Children partner to create free “Building a Home Library” reading lists for parents, grandparents, and others interested in assembling a high-quality library for children at home.
These lists — organized by age groups from 0 to 14 — include tried-and-true classics, under-the-radar gems, multicultural books, and notable new reads.
