Summer Reading

Madison Public Schools

Excellence in Education


Summer 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians:

The summer is a wonderful time for students to have fun, learn new things and read what they most enjoy! Thus, I am delighted to share with you the annual Madison Public Schools Summer Reading List (SRL). This compelling list of titles has been compiled through the combined efforts of many Madison Public Schools staff and community professionals. I hope these recommendations will stir the senses, inspire imagination, and spark a love of reading that will last a lifetime.
Located on the district website,, the 2017 Summer Reading List should be viewed as a starting point only. We encourage you to help your child(ren) seek other books that are “just right” for them; books they will want to read!

It should be noted that many of the titles in the 2017 Summer Reading List are available in e-book and audio format. These can be found through the Scranton Library catalog at or through Madison Public Schools’ e-book collections at

Best wishes for an enjoyable and peaceful summer, and be sure not to forget the book, Kindle or iPad when you’re heading out for a family trip or a day on the shore.
