Grade 1


Welcome first grade readers! You have been practicing choosing just right books from many fiction and nonfiction genres and have built stamina for reading at least 20 minutes at a time. We hope you will continue talking about reading with your friends and adults during the summer.  Below is a list of authors and series that may help to springboard your reading this summer.

The Scranton Library is an invaluable resource to help you connect your child with books, ebooks, audiobooks, magazines and opportunities to spend time with other readers.

This is simply a list of suggestions.  Summer is for reading whatever you enjoy! Readers read what they love!

Parents, please help your child keep track of their reading by either filling out a Summer Reading Recording Sheet of all titles that you've read together and submit it to their teacher in September or by participating in the Scranton Summer Reading program which tracks minutes read over the summer.  

Happy Reading!
