Summertime Reading Enchantment

Summertime is Reading Adventure Time! Photo: Izzy, TreeHouse Apprentice and LadyJane's niece. Summer 2021

We love Summer for so many reasons.  Biking, hiking, swimming, camping, making art, and having time to be adventurous and silly.  But our favorite reason is that there is more time for reading our favorite books when we need to just chill out under the shade of a tree!

For toddlers, try Pippa and Pelle in the Summer Sun  or What's Hiding in There? both by German author Daniela Drescher.

Some of our favorite picture books about nature for older kids are by local Ashland authors: 

Coral's Quest by Zoe Williams

Song of the Redwing Voice of the Wetlands by Tish McFadden
