About the Book

Collected here are 50 highly successful summer reading programs for grades K–7. Each highly flexible plan is developed around a specific theme (art, baseball, geography, zoos, and so on), providing fifteen related activities (bulletin boards, reading incentive games, etc.) and a materials list.
A theme-related reading list—with fiction for younger readers (K–3) and older readers (4–7) and nonfiction titles—is included. A film and video list completes the program.
