On a wet rainy day is Missouri (I’m writing this on Tuesday), I am almost literally walking on sunshine. Black Lives Matter by Sue Bradford Edwards and Duchess Harris is on page 48 of the SCBWI Summer Reading List. Woo-hoo!
A resource for libraries, teachers and bookstores, this is a listing of books published by SCBWI authors. “The Reading List Program includes books of all genres from our PAL authors and illustrators, both front list and backlist titles. This is an opportunity to find that book that a kid or teen will enjoy and can engage with the fun and adventure of reading. Authors and illustrators from close to your hometown to those around the world are featured on the List. The Lists will be published bi-annually this year in the Summer and Winter.”
Interested parties can download the list by region (look below the yellow cover for the list) or in its entirity by clicking on the title, “Download the Summer Reading List.”
The lists are organized by region, Missouri is part of the Mid-South, and within that region by grade level. Take a look and find some great books to read this summer.
