Summer Reading Series | 3-5

Did you know, that 92% of children say they are more likely to finish a book they picked out themselves?


As we mentioned in our K-2 post, we have created a list of great summer reading books, with suggestions from teachers and librarians of Catholic elementary schools all over WNY. Remember that the books on this list are suggestions, so they may or may not be on your son or daughter's required summer reading list. Please also refer to your specific Buffalo Catholic school's required reading list, you just might see a few of these titles!


This is a list for WNY private elementary school students who are entering grades three through five. Keeping your child engaged in healthy reading habits over the summer will help with their performance as they return to school activity in the Fall.
