Disney Sisters: Disney Books: Our Top 10 Picks for Summer Reading

Disney Books: Our Top 10 Picks for Summer Reading

Summer is not over yet and we are still enjoying our long days of frolicing in the sun. But for our young scholars it's important to exercise the mind (and body) during the three month break from school. Reading for 20 minutes a day helps to keep those minds sharp, helping to improve their academic achievement levels during the school year. It's also nice to spend the quality time with your children curled up next to a good book in the cool air conditioned home. This summer we've actually been taking the books with us to a day at the pool, and after they eat lunch give them the 20 minute break (to rest their stomachs) on a shady beach chair with a book. The time will fly by. To set a positive example they have to see us taking time out of our busy summer schedules to read. We know how challenging it can be, but the rewards are worth it. 

Watching their favorite characters on the Disney Channel or Disney Junior is definitely something that our kids like to do, and reading about them is something that us parents can really support! Disney is helping to create readers with a lifetime love of books with their latest and greatest titles for all ages. To encourage our kids to read we often choose Disney Books, and here are some of the current titles on our bookshelves at home.
