Eloise’s Summer Vacation This is an entertaining book for kids ages 4-6. They can get some U.S. geography and follow Eloise as she takes her antics on her summer vacation.
High? Low? Where Did It Go? My kids adore these Dr. Seuss learning library books. Kids ages 5-8 will learn a lot in the newest installment of this book about animals that use camouflage. The whole series is great and educational while still being entertaining and attention grabbing.
Kiki: My Stylish Life This is a series that is designed for newly independent readers ages 6-8. This is a fun summer read and the content is great for a little girl who isn’t all that interested in reading. It will keep her attention and help her with her reading skills all at the same time. The branches series from Scholastic is great for budding readers who are just learning to read longer books on their own.

If You Ever Want to Bring a Piano to the Beach, Don’t! Isn’t this just the cutest book? Kids ages 8-12 will be totally entertained with this book. I just love the cover, I know I know don’t judge the book by the cover. But don’t we all??
Baby-Sitting is a Dangerous Job Kids ages 8-12 are just starting to consider baby-sitting so the idea that it is dangerous is comical and relevant to this age group. The kids will definitely be drawn in and kept entertained with this one.
